Join us for an evening with local poet Kyle Singh, as Kyle transcends the land of light and shadows, life and death, space and time in poetic prose.
"If Einstein had attempted serious poetry, I imagine it might have resembled some of the poems in That Which Is Everlasting. Kyle Singh journeys to the land of light and shadows, life and death, space and time. It is little wonder that he is a physics scholar. But also a mystic, whose poetics are marked by phrasings that capture the paradoxical fabric of matter and spirit: 'the integral substance is changing all the time/changing so it’s not integral.' Whether it be an ant, a fawn, a dog, cattle, or even the wood used to make a death vessel, the target of Singh’s gaze becomes a doorway to other dimensions. What a fascinating mind. I can picture Einstein reading these lines concerning the nature of time and identity, and smiling with poetic envy: 'All moments are imitators of other moments/An affirmation is a continuation of an infinite series/I am a replica of a miniature figurine.'" -Neil Carpathios
