I write poetry inspired by late nineteenth century engineering and medical texts. The idea is to draw from the language and processes of science the colors and allure contained within the sometimes beautiful and emotional scientific descriptions.
We live in a society directed by science and technology. My poetry seeks to gather beneath the results and outcomes of the discoveries to the equations and experiments and relay their meaning through language poetry.
A small bit of background: Aside from struggling on a Master's Thesis, I also type. Recent work of mine has appeared in Speak magazine, Plazm Magazine, Coracle, Generator, and in this world of wires and such in Recursive Angel.
