The Imitation Blues is the third collection of poems from FootHills Publising. Miles Waggener says,”These poems tell the truth, and they are unafraid.” Richard Fifield says they are “deeply rooted. A tough guy eye on mortality, but a tender heart revealed as he squints.” And Monty Campbell, Jr. calls Gibbons “A true master who calls to the animals inside us.

Mauvaises Herbes  translates to Weeds.  This French/English bilingual edition was published in 2009 by PROPOS2editions.  The book was translated by Sean Gibbons (the poet’s son) with assistance from Claude Held.



War, Madness, & Love appeared in 2008 from R & R Publishing, poems from Mark Gibbons and Michael Revere.  Thomas Rain Crowe says. “Howling from the Montana wilderness, Revere and Gibbons are singing out to all generations for the reawakening of the counterculture and the restructuring and redistribution of wealth in America.”




blue horizon, 2007, is Gibbons’ second collection of poems from Two Dogs Press.  

Opening up a Mark Gibbons book of poetry is like opening the door into a rowdy, wild pub.  You never know if you’ll get punched or kissed.  —  Razorcake Magazine

Love is alive and well in the outer provinces of art, thanks to poets like Mark Gibbons.  —  Greg Keeler




Connemara Moonshine was the first publication from Camphorweed Press (what later became Two Dogs Press) in 2002.  It was Gibbons’ first full length collection of poems.  “Connemara Moonshine is illuminated by love and light, as rich and intoxicating as it’s title.”  

— Ed Lahey 



FORGOTTEN DREAMS, Gibbons’ seventh book of poems, is from FootHills Publishing, edited by Craig Czury.  It is #3 in the Montana Poets Series 2.  The book includes seven portraits from photographer Lee Nye’s Eddie’s Club Collection.   Jennifer Greene says, “Mark has a gift for telling it like is.  I feel he speaks the language I think in.”  And gary lundy says, “Gibbons is a beat Montana poet, one of the best, whose poems dance in a rhythmic celebration of life lived one step at a time.”


Shadowboxing is Gibbons’ second collection from FootHills Publishing, 2014.  Tami Haaland calls Gibbons’ work “earthy and elegant.”  Melssa Kwazny says Shadowboxing is “Brazen, alternately vulgar and tender, furious and unabashed, Gibbons dares us to say this isn’t poetry.”  And David Cates claims “the world will be clearer, slower, brighter, and bigger” after reading Shadowboxing.
