Written with precise attention to detail and containing exceptionally musical rhythms, the pieces are influenced from a range of unlikely sources-from Frank O’Hara and Gertrude Stein to the artwork of Yoko Ono-and blending seamlessly to produce a refreshingly different collection of verse.

Excerpt: A hyperlinked version of this chapter is at FortificationThe Forte di Belvedere or Fortezza di Santa Maria in San Giorgio del Belvedere (often called simply Belvedere ) is a fortification in Florence, Italy. It was built by Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici during the period 1590 1595, with Bernardo Buontalenti as the designer, to protect the city and its rule by the Medici family. In particular, it was used to hold the Medici treasury. On the same side of the river as the Grand Ducal palace, the Pitti Palace in the Oltrarno district of the city, today the grounds provide spectacular outlooks over Florence; the buildings are used to hold works of art, and as a venue for exhibitions of contemporary sculpture. The design and construction of the Fort were entrusted to architect Bernardo Buontalenti, the chief architect for both Cosimo I and his son, Ferdinando. The Fort served many purposes: to protect the center of government in Florence, the Pitti Palace; to protect the south end of the city of Florence and the Oltrarno district; to demonstrate the power of the Medici family; and finally to provide a shelter for the Grand Duke if the city came under attack. The fort was connected to Palazzo Vecchio via the Vasari Corridor over Ponte Vecchio, passages in the Pitti Palace and paths through Boboli Gardens. Buontalenti applied contemporary fortification principles
