Poetry. "I moved to New York City, was handed Physical Kind and was in love in seven lines. I have been waiting for this collection ever since. I like poets who let me get in their heads. It's about being with them more than understanding every synapse that fires. Everything that happens in a Coletti poem is treated with equal emphasis, is experienced with equal weight. It's not easy to wake up with a shell sewn inside your ear but Coletti takes the potential burden of hyper-perception and cycles it out to us with 'fighting charm'"--Stacy Szymaszek.
