Biography of Mark R Slaughter
I'm a biological scientist who took up poetry to challenge my written skills. I undertake commissions and collaborative projects - see my website Poem Crypt for more details; major commissions include 'Liquid Rooms' for orchestra and soprano by Karsten Fundal, and 'Death of Leaves', a song cycle for soprano and orchestra by Nicholas Anthony Ascioti. Further poems such as Marriage and Spring are featured on the 'Poets Pages' website.

Your intellect humbles with shattering blow!
Omnipotent, you are at one with the world.
There's no need to seek, as you already know:
Explained, reconciled, all so neatly unfurled.
Those complex equations are pliable toys,
And yours just to play with and loosen your mind.
Hypotheses and theories are also your boys -
In your world, together, all cosily enshrined.
