WESTERN CAPITAL RHAPSODIES

Marcella Durand, Author . WESTERN CAPITAL RHAPSODIES Faux $12.50 (0p) ISBN 978-0-9710371-0-6

Durand's underground classic "City of Ports" poems, which track, Julius Knipl-style, Manhattan past in Manhattan present, are complimented here by poems on "Chinatown," the shoreline "City of Nets" and "Machine into Water 1-25," a series of poems spotting the essential substance everywhere in the urban landscape. However wry her title, Durand's rhapsody is readily apparent throughout, delineating environmental joy and despair with equal measures of wonder and anger, "how beautiful the orange strung/ light wires of your diurnal cages."
