Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973996005, Paperback)

This Brevity, Gianmarc Manzione's debut collection of poetry, bares a concentration of everyday occurrences, that "continual fever of circumstance / no one knows the end of", and questions each end with an honesty so vivacious that even death becomes an opportunity for the heart to revisit its losses. With discipline and ardor, his interrogations discover possibilities that assemble themselves into moments where loss, desire, and understanding, like Ashbery's trees, surprise us with a meaning that is at once calculated and unhinged.
