Nate Maxson, Age of Jive

Maxson's voice is the perfect tour guide for this strange world of poetics. He invents a new form with which to capture the chaos and subtlety of a language on fire-it's full of surprise followed by shock, and shock followed by quiet awe. This is poetry you've been waiting for: rambling but crafted, precise and wild, respectful of the traditions but traveling terra incognita at breakneck speed.

Nate Maxson was born in Cleveland, Ohio sometime towards the end of the last millennium. Having discovered poetry as a boy the way other people find drugs or religion, he has not looked back since. He lives and writes in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
