Abstract: The poems in this collection are unified, if at all, by nothing more than my own personal view of the world; a world which changes more rapidly than do our perceptions of it. I suppose all poems can be seen as attempts to crystallize the fluid substance of time, and mine are no exceptions. Since I am neither a seer nor an anthropologist, it should be no surprise that they focus not on the butterfly or caterpillar, but on the constantly changing creature within the chrysalis. The world which I present is as much a mystery to me as to anyone else, and for that reason no answers are offered here; what I have attempted to offer instead are clear statements of certain questions.
