Still Hungry (Signature Editions 2015) is her fourth published collection of poetry. Its subject is the complicated relationship that contemporary foodies have with food, hunger and desire. The poems reflect on a society where food abundance and starvation co-exist; where we Instagram our meals and then resist eating to pay penance for having eaten at all. Food is not just about eating and survival. It plays an essential role in our well-being. Still Hungry explores the many metaphors of food.

Gordoneer previously published three chapbooks: When All Else Fails, Dissecting Grace, and War Stories.
