Cosmological Tendencies:A Changed Complexion at the Menches' Convention By Marvin Kirsh
eBook (PDF): $0.00

A Non-random state of the entire universe rather than just human life and existence is not always considered in creative expression. The assembly of poems in Cosmological Tendencies is meant to...

I hope, poetic constructions in a 'bits and pieces' approach inherited from an academic background in the Natural Sciences, diverging to confront human paradox, will enlighten, entertain and educate to the possibility of a wall that, other than fixed and pre-existing, though immoveable, grows forwards from the conscious reflections that compose the choruses of men and women in their learnings rather than from their engagements to action.< Less
