About Eliot Jacobson Ph.D.
Poetry inhabits a place of uncertainty. The reader’s attention, forced beyond the apparent intention of the words, words written, remembered, overheard, resonant with levels of metaphors, describing events real and imagined, sourced from inside the deep well of associations, attempts to reassemble disconnected components into an uncompromisingly pronounced truth. Published poet Eliot Jacobson, Ph.D., shares such poems in this volume.
The author inhabits the shared suffering, the neurosis of disconnection that is ruining modern humanity. He describes a world that sucks meaning out of trivialities while shirking from the uncompromising language and truth of numbers, the description of what is. The author attacks this disconnection in poems that range from personal relationships to politics and to the accelerating failure of the planet and its ecosystems. His poems speak from and of the degrading genetic material of life on this sacred and lonely planet.
