CITY: An Essay

Brian Lennon, Author . Univ. of Georgia $24.95 (112p) ISBN 978-0-8203-2321-3

"The more or less total loss of control. As in:/ AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" Lennon's always capital "C" City is New York, and his flaneur-like speaker haunts the Upper West Side with a calm belied by the above quote, like "the entire sky revolving on the pin of the sun, revealing now serenity, now rage." Carefully registering everything from "Warm body air pouring from collar" to, when on an Italian trip, "Bernini's fish-men tooting water from ornaments," he builds this verse essay from the ground up.
