Now Announcing Trading Card #8: Peter Gizzi
Fact-Simile Editions is pleased to present the 8th installment in our Poetry Trading Card series: Mr. Peter Gizzi!

With this latest poem, Mr. Gizzi once again "[takes] language close to the bone...forces attention to operate closely according to the dictation of images."-Dale Smith
