With poem titles like Making Time, Devolution, Entropy, Relativity, Dark Matter, and with an epigraph from Carl Sagan, and references to Mastodons, petroglyphs and quantum states, one might expect to find a collection of science-nerd poems. But science itself has changed (and maybe rescued poetry in the process). We don’t live in a deterministic universe of Newtonian mechanics. Yes, “The world / wheels toward the inevitable”. But we live in a universe of unobservable observations and strange attractions. The path to the inevitable is not fixed.

I grew up in New York and Massachusetts, and have an MFA in creative writing (fiction) from Mills College in Oakland, CA. My fiction and poetry have appeared in various journals, and my poetry chapbook Blueshifting was published by Upper Rubber Boot Books. My work reflects my various artistic obsessions, including science, nature, time, and what it means to live in a physical body. I enjoy creating characters and worlds that explore the strange and unusual, and believe that sometimes the strangest world of all is this one. View all posts by Heather Kamins
