The poems that follow -- selected by the poet himself from published as well as unpublished or uncollected work -- represent the variety of De Marchi's poetry. This is a poet who speaks clearly, who does not indulge in half-hearted exchanges, and who is willing to read between the lines. This is a poet who relishes the here and now and the epiphany possible in every moment -- a poet who is therefore ready to seize and share what is here and not elsewhere.
He runs a pin through the insect/ newly caught,/ then further down/ he sticks a label/ with its name and other facts./ Thus -- bless him --/ he abridges the gulf between/ words and things.
