The poetry of Janie Hofmann takes its inspiration from many sources, especially mythology and science fiction, which she skillfully blends to present a provocative vision of the way things were, are, and ought to be.  She speaks of the never-ending duty of an astronomer:

 

…Were I to rest one night, what single shred

of comet, tail-spin of star, or tiny key to Cassiopeia

would I miss?

 

and of human passion:

 

The heat was a human drum, its skin

pulled tight around us, its heart

underneath our backbones, up inside

the hot rhythm we made between ache and breath.

 

and of betrayal:

 

Now shackled, even the shoreline

wounds me. Though I pine

for the sea once again

it never was my friend.

 

with equal fluidity and depth.  She is more than worth an evening under a reading light, pausing, and pondering.
