The poet Carl Rakosi says of David Gitins work: These carefully selected perceptions in airy, delicate balance, unburdened by over-explication or description, leave the imagination free to fill them in. Mr. Gitin understands what is poetically worth observing...the minimum for giving one a lift...and what would be too much. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet George Oppen says that: assembled against the wall (the poems) spell out, and frequently with brilliant precision, what has happened. A.R.Ammons says: You (Gitin) touch a sort of Zen infinitude. And John Cage says simply: The work is beautiful.
