The Equation of Constants
Artistically Declined Press
poetry collection, 15-pages, free e-book

The Equation of Constants, is running with history and place, all above the basic construct of mathematics. Everything is constant, build the equation.

“The poems in B. L. Pawelek’s The Equation of Constants are built of short wonderful phrases, like curtly reading each separate branch and leaf of a tree – and when we step back we see the magnificently whole structure, the beauty of big, the massive feel of shade in a yard where all else is sun.”J. A. Tyler, author of In Love With a Ghost

“Poems of isolation and detachment, punctuated by blasts of color and a longing for nature.” – Ben Tanzer, author of You Can Make Him Like You
