Description: Poems from the author of Going Fast

A can of shaving cream inflates

A ping-pong ball of lather,

Thick, hot, smaller than an atom, soon

The size of the world.

This does take time to happen.

Back at the start

Again, a pinprick swells so violently

It shoots out

Hallways to other worlds,

But keeps expanding

Till it is all

There is. The universe is all there is.

-- from "Mirror Full of Stars"

The Cosmos Poems is about the universe: who it is, how it is, how it came to be, what is going to happen; when, why, who you are; what there was before it was; the smallness and the vastness, as told by a child to a child, in which quantum mechanics makes friends with special relativity forever. Frederick Seidel's poems tell the story.
