2019 Alice James Award Winner Booklist, Starred Review: “The disciplines of poetry and physics might seem far afield from one another, but Ben-Oni draws on the odd properties of supersymmetry to create a dexterous collection of electric lyrics that defies conventions of science and syllabics alike.

In fragments of text that float and swirl in staccato arrangements, Ben-Oni grapples with otherwise abstract principles made intimate in their idiosyncratic imagining: “They are not elegant. // I mean. My vibra- tions, my math. In particular. // The math holding me together is particularly faulty.” Projected outward, the poet’s vision captures relationships with breathtaking imagery, as when a poem slowly disentangles the speak- er’s connection with her father-in-law: “The air is grey. & osseous. Sheds soft down. My eyes water.” A series of “Poet Wrestling” poems define the book’s structure, and “Poet Wrestling with the Brxght Brxght Xyxs” recalls Ben-Oni’s previous collection, turn around, BRXGHT XYXS (2019), creating a multifaceted, intertextualverse} String Theory” invokes Hebrew gematria and the 11 dimensions hypothesized by string theory with equal ease, and serves as a cypher through which to understand preceding passages.

If This is the Age We End Discovery maps, like a series of carefully wrought equations, the physics of connection and loss. What does a love song echo against when it spins into space? What symmetries and risks are woven into our very code? How do we live wired for uncertainty, in the yawn of the universe we can’t control? Readers will find it impossible to escape this collection’s unparalleled gravitational pull.” —Jennifer Militello, author of A Camouflage of Specimens and Garments “Rosebud Ben-Oni's poetry is exquisite and astounding. This is a poet who is going places.” —Noelle Kocot "I experience much boredom these days with the world and its predictable cruelties or poetry and its predictable safeties. This phenomenon of a book launches me with its wonder into space and the multiverse and then somehow discovers compassion where we might expect to find only absence of heat or light. Ben-Oni rides with and wrestles the horse of theory to the event horizon's brink, and at the point that empirical proof can take her no further, love transmutes undoing into possibility unimagined." —Kyle Dargan, author of Anagnorisis

    Ben-Oni's poetry borders the otherworldliness of quantum physics, her surprisingly playful artistic genius, while being strongly influenced in pop cultre. This collection meant so much to me beacause of the issues of faith, belief, science and family interwoven in each poem! I ADORE this collection! Rosebud Ben Oni had me at Solecism, her first collection of poetry, then solidified my joy with Turn Around BrXght XYXS, but I have to admit that this is my favorite collection!

    Complex and brilliant, this is poetry at its best. Rosebud Ben-Oni takes theoretical physics as her starting point to explore the philosophical and scientific, charting new courses in form and insight. The first read may be difficult and elusive, but deep reading is definitely rewarded.
