By Available Light is an education on how lost time can be recovered through poetry, how the murky, clogged waters of the past can be clarified by words and made to flow again. This book of Michael Carrino's new and selected poetry brings together the voices of son, brother, soldier, lover, traveller, and, as each one shares intimate stories, we are reminded that the poet is always more than one person, that he is all the lives and autobiographies his imagination can salvage. Carrino's work is immediate and totally captivating, and he never writes without his two collaborators: heart and mind. -- Luciano Iacobelli
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.
