From the publisher: Each poem is a vortex, an Event Horizon, a threshold, or point of no return. Although Event Horizon is defined as a notational boundary around a black hole, these poems also explore “event” in a broader sense – the varying degrees to which an experience can change, destroy and reconfigure us and our lives. Zakia Carpenter-Hall illustrates astrophysics and black hole theory using a variety of poetics, ranging from the use of fragmentation and repetition to surrealism and mirroring. The problem with physics for non practitioners is often that “we cannot deliver its secrets with our hands”. But this is a collection that makes the theoretical tangible and thereby brings us closer to ourselves.
