Everything he's ever made is available for free at his website. You can read all his poetry - and there's tons of it - on

The website itself has the old-fashion HTML 4.0 trendy "tiled background image" and a menu to the left kind of look. It was made using AOLpress/2.0. Yes. AOLpress/2.0. However, it does the job of poetry presentation and navigation satisfactory.

Almost all of the poems at the site have these neat links who allow you to download a MP3 and a WAV audio file where Gordon reads the poem.
