In By Available Light: New and Selected Poems, Michael Carrino's empathic imagination illuminates vivid portraits of loved ones and strangers alike in their mutual longing for the possibility of love. Carrino artfully leads the reader across the "problematic border between light and shade" through dimly lit cityscapes, past old ports bathed in August moon shadow. We step with him as the images unfold, savoring the "tested pleasure" his poems will bring. -- Carol Lipszyc
Another reckless night -- rain and a man, alone,/ his Harley disabled, is blindsided by La Forza/ del Destino. I bet you never considered/ leaving him stranded on the turnpike shoulder.
