what can you find at the intersection of the highways of poetry and physics?

Sometimes it’s love.

The Physics of Love and Other Uncertain Phases of the Chemistry in Coulomb’s Law.

Read my suite of poems, exploring love, using five equations in physics as springboards, in the spring 2017 issue of The Gambler.

Rainer Maria Rilke Said:

The artist’s experience lies so unbelievably close to the sexual, to its pain and its pleasure, that the two phenomena are really just different forms of one and the same longing and bliss.

I know if I am not feeling that level of intensity when I am writing (with what I am writing) that I am just phoning it in. When I do work that I feel has some courage and life and fire in it, I feel the same level of vulnerability writing that I feel as when I am making love.

Editing fiction is like using your fingers to untangle the hair of someone you love.
