Review:

I kept returning to Double Feature and to its often astonished speaker who claims in his title poem that he is somehow still... living/in two separate worlds, the forsaken and the longed for... His astonishment, however, is declared matter-of-factly. Colonnese s is a world carefully and precisely seen. The doubleness that exists for him becomes, persuasively (though he s not trying to persuade us of anything), a portrait of how most of us experience experience. --Stephen Dunn

In this Double Feature what s industrial is both heaven and hell; what s human and beautiful is carved out of nightmare and hard circumstance. This is the poetry of modern day indentured servitude penned by an underground man with a mirror and a periscope. Colonnese has inherited Yeats s cold eye and James Wright s intensity. Brilliantly choreographed sentences plunge the reader through the speaker s complex and compelling story double helixed with planetary losses. This first collection is both miraculously wrought and moving. I couldn't put it down. --Roger Weingarten
