"Joe Amato proposes a poetry of discourse: he thinks, talks, and will try to persuade sometimes. The work is alive with intelligence.... For most of this century poetry has been coy about speaking its mind, and there have been persistent rumors that poetry has nothing to say, that it is a great former of forms but silent. Amato's poetry speaks, and it is important that we listen."
