Abstract:

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.
