Abstract

As a poet, I am continually on the lookout for the strange in the real, and the real in the strange: scientific, linguistic, poetic, human. These poems are my offerings of strange realness and real strangeness. Often where the poems want to go is toward questions that live in connection / disconnection, identity, disability and illness, art, religion and ritual, desire and love and wanting, and one of my dearest loves, music. And, of course, science and language, and the language of science.
