SOME JOY FOR MORNING Now the connection with springhas dissolved.

Now that hysteria is blooming. Says every day I want to fly my kite. Says what's a grammar when you is no longer you. My world is hydrogen burning in space and in the fullness of etc.

I have read the news and learned nothing. I try to understand thewhooshing overhead. But for a little light now. I didn't realize the treewas weeping. How was I to know I am not alone. Wildlight. The poems in this brilliant follow-up to the National Book Award finalist Archeophonics, are concerned with grieving, with poetry and death, with beauty and sadness, with light.

As Ben Lerner has written, "Gizzi's poetry is an example of how a poet's total tonal attention can disclose new orders of sensation and meaning.

Saturated with luminous detail, these original poems possess, even in their sorrowing moments, a dizzying freedom.
