Item description for First Words (Green Integer) by Douglas Messerli...
Begun as an exercise in which Messerli embedded the first word or two from lines of poetry by other poets, First Words gradually transformed into a personal document of despair and hope in the years 19951997. Messerli's work has long been centered on wit and wordplay, but here a new romanticism enters his writing as he struggles to make meaning of fire, flood, riot, earthquake, personal events, and age.
