In a group of poems several time-related themes are explored in imagistic and narrative terms. The sequence imagines answers to such questions as: What would it feel like to live a second life? If medical science can extend life for many, what would be the sociopolitical implications? How much would such experience replicate mystical conceptions such as reincarnation, afterlife, etc? How would memory survive such a massive reorganization of brain and body? What would be the moral and psychological consequences of not having the pressure of death in one's future? How would personal relationships be affected? What are the implications for authentic living?
