A Heart with No Scars by Brennan DeFrisco


In his debut chapbook-length collection of poetry, A Heart of No Scars, Brennan DeFrisco examines change and the spectrum of lenses through which we view it.

What People Are Saying

“Brennan DeFrisco is one of my favorite up-and-coming performance poets. A Heart With No Scars is a fantastic look into the fire he brings to the stage. ‘Empty Glass’ feels like good whiskey after the last bad day of a terrible week.”


“The first line in this collection, ‘Descend at your own risk,’” should stand as a warning. Prepare to fall in love, into mourning, mourn with the poet a city transforming and displacing, mourn the distance between frIends and lovers, imagine a future lover’s apocalyptic kiss. Brennan DeFrisco is a romantic and a realist all at once. Step with caution and don’t say you haven’t been warned.”

Cassandra Dallett, author of Wet Reckless (2014), Bad Sandy (2015), and On Sunday, a Finch (2015)
