By Richard Norman

Present-day astronomy, large, advanced, is calling via darkness to far-off items and occasions. but its discoveries aren’t solely clinical: from the moons of Pluto to the Doppler impact, the evening sky monitors a spot the place math meets fantasy. 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 reduce the fats off space,
you going backwards renders time.
Seconds drop like filings
when a magnet is became off.

Praise for Zero Kelvin

"All straight away the weather cave in and extend, turn into inseparable and distant, attractive and terrifying – this can be what Richard Norman’s poems do to us. We think stars, these tiny suns, as phrases blazing throughout the web page; like airborne dirt and dust or sand they depart a residue in our techniques, 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 fact and myth." —Leigh Kotsildis, writer of Hypotheticals
