“….poems….marked by their attention to the sound and rhythm of language….” – Kirkus Reviews “.…particularly lovely….” – Kirkus Reviews “….marked by strong political opinions and the skillful use of language.” – Kirkus Reviews City of Pawns is a stimulating, often provocative, collection of poetry and haiku. Most of the poems are written in free verse style, without rhyme or punctuation. Tangential themes of this volume can be found in the conceptual intersections of things urban, political, historic and nostalgic, often drawn from the author’s personal experiences. By design, there is no chapter or subject group structure. Rather, these poems are presented eclectically, allowing the reader a wide-ranging experience within even just a few pages, much as they were conceived. Previously published poems by Mr. Lenzi have appeared in the anthology Great Poems of the Western World, in the Rutgers University literary journal and in the “New Hampshire Troubadour” literary magazine. This is his first dedicated book of poetry.
