In the Hebrew Bible, the word nephesh ( נֶ֫פֶשׁ ) is often translated as the "breath of life." This is a book of poems which the author hopes will breathe life into those who are currently in quarantine, providing them a source of intellectual amusement and taking their minds off of their current worries, at least to some extent. The poems have overtones of puzzles through word-play and double meanings, yet still strive to remain accessible through the pure joy of word-sounds and syllabic rhythm. Re-reading them should provide the means to gain additional insight and play over time, inviting the reader to revisit the book years into the future.
