As the title of this excellent book suggests,
Weingart's poems are mordantly witty,
intelligently skeptical, understated in the best sense, and incisively accurate. Levitation
For Agnostics promises a paradoxical gift to those whose minds deny them faith and whose hearts deny them denial: the gift of poetry, the lift of lyric, the momentary weightlessness of a restless contemplative spirit. "I would sign up / to lose it all again / in an afterlife if only / the universe were not expanding / but contracting into something /
more hilarious...," he contends in one of the book's finest poems. And, at least for the moment we find ourselves rising, we believe.
Author of Skandalon, The Infinity Sessions, and
Walt Whitman in Hell
