My write up on Kadian.
Jordan Castro's Kadian was published in early February 2012.
The poems develop a dirty photograph of a realistic and highly relatable young person struggling to find a balance between emotional integrity and deteriorating morals.
Castro's work in this chapbook is unlike anything he has shown before.
Kadian marks a turning point in Castro's development from a confused teenaged poet into a respectable, but still confused, grown-ass person on their way to becoming a cemented staple in the alternative literature world.
