Funny, erotic, entertaining, the poems in this book revel in the absudities of modern city life, the drama of great sporting moments (football, cricket, darts) and the beauty of physics.
I hand you a muon, a kaon, they vanish
without trace, you give me a microscopic
black hole, it evaporates before I can touch it.
You hold out your hands, but what can I give you
when nothing will last? I kiss your lips
and the heat of your mouth lingers a moment
then disappears like everything else.
from Half Life
