if i really wanted to feel happy i'd feel happy already

my poetry book if i really wanted to feel happy i would feel happy already (black coffee press, 2013) is out now!




"Jordan Castro's if i really wanted to feel happy i'd feel happy already is one of my favorite books. I feel consistently delighted, excited, emotional, amused, intellectually stimulated while reading it and rereading it and thinking about it. I highly recommend it and am glad it exists." - Tao Lin

"Jordan Castro is a thin man. This is why the inner fat man inside of me wants to hate him. But I don't. Jordan Castro is one of those true poets whose poems don't feel like poems. When you read most poems it makes you feel like you're fasting. This is how empty most poems feel. Castro's poems are different. They are full of carbs and girls and life and recklessness and wildness and flesh. They fill me up. They make me feel hungry for more. I read them and I eat. I read them and I eat. I grow large with this rock and roll and life. Fifty years from now, people will read these poems and whisper, "I want to be young again. I want to be young again." And it will be so." - Scott McClanahan
