Views from along the Middle Way
Thomas Centolella

In his third book, San Francisco poet Thomas Centolella offers a journey through the tenuous nature of human intimacy into philosophical considerations from the East and the West (the "middle way" of the title derives from Buddhism's middle ground between asceticism and self-indulgence). Varying from conversational narratives to shorter lyrical ruminations, Centolella's voice bends adroitly to meet the needs of urban life.
