cubes or bytes?

While reading an article about nuclear physics (curiosity will get me yet), I found that nuclear physicists have labeled certain particles as “daughter” and “granddaughter” isotopes, revealing a surprising attitude toward their discoveries.


cubes or bytes?


what are the physics

of thought and poetry?

how do images

slip through our minds

each day

all night:

as streams of

slippery cubes

or flights of

silver-quick bytes?

physicists create



isotopes within atoms

as daughters and even

grand daughters:

the wonders of

radioactive poetry.

I've been writing mostly poetry for many years and have gotten a number of works accepted in publications and anthologies. I'm most interested in communicating with poets for whom craft is a high priority. I enjoy finding and commenting on poetic gems in other people's work. For my own work, I welcome polite comments, whether positive or critical.
