Poetry. WHATEVER STASIS is Tonelli's second collection of poetry, one that finds that "beautiful and worthy subjects / are everywhere / which is / out of reach." Meditative, funny, at once searching and resigned, Tonelli shows us that "A poet / is the opposite / of god" in all the best slow and subtle ways.
