Rods and koans: poems

Poetry. California Interest. Using word play, wit, juxtaposition, and the koan riddling tradition as inspiration, these poems trace the intersection of body, mind, and everyday objects. Exploring the personal and the ideological, they delve into the many ways the scientific, the political, and the philosophical infiltrate private spaces and also offer the hope that we can shape the spirit of that mingling and send new possibilities into the scientific, political, and philosophical realms.
