Imani: Welcome to The Lounge. Let's start off with a simple icebreaker and begin with your story, just who is James Gordon?

James: James Gordon is the alter ego of G.P.A.(Greatest Poet Alive), the embodiment of talent, hustle, ambition, and gorgeousness.

What inspire you to write, and how long have you been taking up the craft?

G.P.A. started writing in 2007. Poetry allowed him to escape and seek higher grounds. He is inspired by the idiosyncrasies of beautiful women and the reality o everyday life.

What's your favorite part of the poetry process: writing words into art, or reciting the passion behind the words?

Writing words into art is the G.P.A.’s favorite part of the process. Performing is fun, but there has to be more added to the purity of the respective poem.

What’s your favorite artistic creation you’ve written, and would you mind sharing it with us below? (Brief excerpt if it’s a novel or a short story or a full poem):

15 Minutes 

one minute to say hello and good to see you two minutes to embrace you two minutes to allow my eyes to travel your landscape, my nose to inhale your scent, touch your face and hair one minute to compliment you, tell you how much I miss you and am glad to see you. a minute to kiss your lips lightly a minute to kiss your lips fully a minute to kiss you and inhale your breath a minute to kiss you and give you breath back thirty seconds to pause thirty seconds of looking into your soul and you mine. two minutes to kiss you, exchange breaths, and let tongues salsa a minute to hold your hand after kissing again a minute to say I cannot wait to see you again, embrace and kiss you again. 

Just give me fifteen minutes Then, you can go back to work Then, you can go back inside. If you must, you can go back to him. 
15 minutes

Nice! Now what’s your next project(s)?

G.P.A. has finished and will release his first novel, The Warmest Winter.

What is your dream collaboration? With whom, and why?

Imagine if G.P.A. and Nikki Giovanni collaborated on a project. Their styles are similar in the narrative form that they deliver Poetry. And besides, it would be epic.

Finally, share with us something you've never mentioned publicly since being an author; such as, a quirk or a hidden talent. I'm sure readers would like to know.

G.P.A. is a huge fan of Batman.
