Download PDF by Richard Norman: Zero Kelvin

By Richard Norman

Present-day astronomy, sizeable, complicated, is calling via darkness to far-off gadgets and instances. but its discoveries aren’t solely clinical: from the moons of Pluto to the Doppler impact, the evening sky displays a spot the place math meets delusion. Now, in Zero Kelvin, in scenes that shift from the mountains of Goma to the mountains of the moon, from galaxies that ceremonial dinner upon their neighbours to a sunlight sail unfurling above Earth's orbit, Richard Norman’s poetry probes either newly glimpsed corners of the universe, and the myths which convey them into focus.


It is a human urge—
to orbit backwards at nice speed.
Experimentally, you do it
and then the crack of lightning,
the open-ended snowflake, splits the sky.
Just because the sculptor minimize the fats off space,
you going backwards renders time.
Seconds drop like filings
when a magnet is grew to become off.

Praise for Zero Kelvin

"All right away the weather cave in and extend, develop into inseparable and distant, appealing and terrifying – this is often what Richard Norman’s poems do to us. We consider stars, these tiny suns, as phrases blazing during the web page; like airborne dirt and dust or sand they depart a residue in our concepts, worlds deep, so we would inadvertently hold them to paintings, or to the mattress of a lover. here's the place language consumes us, absolute and intangible, among truth and myth." —Leigh Kotsildis, writer of Hypotheticals
