QUANTUM HERESIES: Poems
In these lithe, contemplative poems, Mary Peelen faces the complexities of life—and death—and works to solve them. Peelen’s mind is a wonder to inhabit; she leaps effortlessly between world and interior, calculation and metaphor, so gracefully that each conclusion feels as though it can be the only correct answer, the sole solution. If anyone can manage the math to or from the divine, it’s this poet. —Leila Chatti, author of Tunsiya/Amrikiya
