Description - Some Common Weaknesses Ilustrated by Carson Cistulli

Some Common Weakness Illustrated, Carson Cistulli's first book, is a series of unexpected meditations on overlooked parts of life. Combining formalism with poetic experiment, his poems shed light on his peculiar condition of feeling that he is trapped inside of a poem while being addicted to sports-basketball and baseball in particular. In these poems language seems to replace meaning, while feeding our spectacular, collective appetite for the truth. Yale Series Poetry Award Winner, Loren Goodman writes: Carson Cistulli's book of poems is like the rabbit that pulls the magician into his hat. It is like an enormous handkerchief spewing out colorful severed hands. It is like the woman who uses her naked body to cut saws in half.
