Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374530726, Paperback)
Capacity, the extraordinary new collection from the award-winning poet James McMichael, deliberates an earth that supplies what people need to live. Land, water, sky, food, shelter, thought, talk, sex—each is addressed at the pace of someone dense with wonder’s resistance to take for granted even the smallest or most obvious parts of existence.
Capacity is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist for Poetry.

Up from the center of the earth, Capacity surfaces on the North Atlantic. It is pulled southeasterly toward the place its language comes from, so dense with wonder at what it meets along the way that it takes nothing for granted. Obsessed with the small, these poems address one by one the things that people need to live. Land, water, sky, food, shelter, thought, talk, sex, and generation: Any person is capacitated in the measure that these things are there as his or her world. Capacity supposes that how this world goes is worthy of being sung.--From publisher description.
