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.

Capacity supposes that how this world goes is worthy of being sung.--From publisher description.… (more)
