New poems from the author of Going Fast, with original illustrations by Anselm Kiefer.
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 were commissioned by the American Museum of Natural History to inaugurate and celebrate their new planetarium, which will open in the year 2000.
This limited edition is signed by the author.

As an attempt to merge poetic meditation and scientific speculation, it is both earnest and user-friendly. -- The New York Times Book Review, Albert Mobilio
