About i tulips:

"It’s the sensation of singularly live words that immediately draws one toward Mario Petrucci’s poems. The intensity of address in them, both “of” and “about” the poem, maintains its friendly but firm grip. In the process, Petrucci is seeing the world, how it all sits or moves amidst anyone’s sense of ongoing purpose. He doesn’t miss much. These poems are eye openers."
—Bill Berkson

"Petrucci is somebody working with a lively circumspection in a tradition he’s demonstrating not to have been merely an early-to-mid-20th-century exploration."
—Roy Fisher

"Poised, balletic, in its exploration of intellectual and physical, light-bound space."
—Simon Jenner
