Summary (From the publisher):

alphabet is based structurally on Fibonacci's sequence, in which each number is the sum of the two previous numbers. The poetry herein reflects a complex philosophical background, but also has a visionary quality, each line discovering the metaphysical in the simple stuff of everyday life. The end result is a framework of psalm-like forms that unfold like expanding universes, while crystalizing both the beauty and the potential for destruction that permeate our times.
