Endlessly inventive, yet thoughtful and musical, "i tulips" presents a set of tender modernist lyrics with a strong contemporary edge.
Turning his generous eye (or microscope) towards nature, science, everyday human experience and - with compelling intimacy - love, Mario Petrucci combines an uncompromising urgency with a many-sided, fractal beauty that rewards sustained attention.
Drawing from Rilke and Wallace Stevens - as well as the Black Mountain poets - the arresting imagery and breathtaking energy of i tulips create an immediate impact, while Petrucci's masterful wordplay and technical sophistication allow added dimensions to unfurl for the committed reader.
