Meet J.Iron Word, Houston’s Enigmatic Modern Poet
The mysterious writer spends his days writing about love.
The season of love is upon us. Romance is in the air, prix fixe menus are printed, and cupid’s bow delicately rests in its perpetual quiver. For modern poet J. Iron Word, however, love is not meant for one day. February 14 is a day like any other filled with love and pain, as all the best days are.
J. Iron Word began writing in 2015 after delivering the eulogy for his grandfather’s funeral. Friends and family members began to ask where they could read his work, and Word realized he might have stumbled onto a hidden talent. He began writing a novel, which he abandoned and traded in for short-form poetry, also known as modern poetry. After posting his poetry on Instagram, he found success. Word has over 600,000 followers and three books (Abstract Heart; Live Loud, Love Loud; and She is Me) to his name.
“J.IronWord” is presumably not J IronWord’s real name, but there’s little info about him online, apart from the slogan on his website, which reads “I don’t claim to be anything, but human”. Such modesty can’t do anything, but impress. The Amazon blurb for his debut collection of empowering love-wisdom poetry calls it “a labour of love, emerging from the unfiltered mind of poet J Iron Word”. Surely filtering is the job of any writer? (by Thomas W Hodgkinson)
