Far-From-Equilibrium Conditions

By Michael Lieberman

Far-From-Equilibrium Conditions, Michael Lieberman's fifth collection of poems, struggles to find meaning in a world unmoored by turmoil and scientific discovery. In one poem, a speaker notes, "I will be assigned as nothing" and then implores that "it be a significant nothing." Lieberman is one of our most gifted poets whose preoccupation with love and desire create a gravity that is its own meaning in our topsy-turvy universe. Many of these poems are set in Lieberman's Houston neighborhood though they move far afield as they search for a coherent vision of the world.

MICHAEL LIEBERMAN is a physician and scientist who lives in Houston with his wife Susan. He is the author of four previous collections of poems.
