NOAH ELI GORDON is an Associate Professor in the MFA Program at CU-Boulder. According to the author, "The poems featured here come from a series composed in late 2016/early 2017 entirely on my iPhone in less than five minutes each. I wanted to see if an art dedicated to presence and immediacy might offer itself as a balm against the technology that serves otherwise to eradicate the art from both of these conditions."
