An assembly of poems that is meant to confront paradox, generate humor, and expose human situations by example.
Complex Ideas For Your Simple Time
A Non-random state of the entire universe rather than just human life and existence is not always considered in creative expression. The assembly of poems in Cosmological Tendencies is meant to confront paradox, generate humor, expose human situations from the only plausible view, from example as they are part, without exception, of a cosmos that has no parts that are 'out of this world', is a story line itself that contains and beholds itself as one beholds the stories of life that exist no other way but in the beholding, and is all that exists. I hope, poetic constructions in a 'bits and pieces' approach inherited from an academic background in the Natural Sciences, diverging to confront human paradox, will enlighten, entertain and educate to the possibility of a wall that, other than pre-existing and determining, though immoveable, grows with direction of the choruses of men and women in their learning rather than with their engagement to action.
Cosmological tendencies was created partly during travels around America and part as I appended studies in Philosophy and Anthropology to my education as PhD in Biochemistry . I hope, more than with the creation of imagery in poetry, that I have managed to create in words the potential to ‘see’ within the perplexities of being human and spiritual, spaces where the mind struggles for uniting concepts within a non-comprehendible reading for order of the passing of time by the senses.
The included poems, mostly written in Los Angeles during the period from 2000 to 2010, a few earlier during the 80’s as a student in New York and Baltimore, are arranged in random order with the hope to stimulate the imagination to take meaning in whatever various words or combinations within themes to produce diverse impressions, perspectives of words and ideas according to individual inclinations and creativity. In preparation for reading, a discontinuity rather than order for the assortment of meaning with regards to expression and style, changed over the course of my life and educational experiences, is deliberate so that each piece should be construed to stand on its’ own, though certain themes- i.e. regarding the questioning and irony of circumstance-may appear to thread consistently throughout. It is my ultimate hope to expand the vision, employing simplicities, to perceive a world that is ultimately more relative than constant, but certain rather than uncertain that there is not a something else ‘out of the world’ beyond the knowings and familiarities plain to vision and shared to human existence.
