This week’s New Favorite Poet is: Ray Gonzalez

This week’s poet writes from Colorado, a place I had the great fortune of visiting this past weekend, so it’s quite fitting he is included this week! His poetry is sometimes political / socially relevant, as is the case of Railroad Face. He also uses his Latino upbringing as subject matter / background like in Adult. The defining thread throughout all his work is gorgeous use of images and a real sense of storytelling. I hope you like as much as I do! His bio is at the Poetry Foundation’s website below:
