"Homage to Mistress Oppenheimer", Steve Kronen

Poetry. HOMAGE TO MISTRESS OPPENHEIMER is a collection that hangs in the balance—between the apocalyptic and the everyday, fate and choice, love and death. Like nuclear fission itself, these poems transmute themselves, taking on the forms of twisted sestinas and transformational terza rima to take on the constant movement of their subject matter: the business of being a person with an awareness of both science and God. From abstract associations that shift from the universal to the specific, Kronen pares his poems down to still, sparse considerations of enduring love, fatherhood, free will and, finally, our uniquely human awareness of oblivion. At once poignant, funny, and distortedly original, this collection is unmissable.
