mine is to have faith in what betrays.
Six poems from Jeremy Cantor’s debut collection, Wisteria from Seed (Kelsay Books, 2015), arranged for mezzo-soprano and accompaniment by Dr. Robert Gross, a composer of theater, film and television scores and of electroacoustic music, have been performed at the Boston Conservatory. Jeremy’s poems have appeared in ISLE (Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, published in conjunction with Oxford University Press) and other journals. He was a semi-finalist in the competition for the Dartmouth Poet-in-Residence at the Frost Place, Robert Frost’s family home in Franconia, New Hampshire. Jeremy began writing after retiring from a career in laboratory chemistry. He has made and tested engine oil additives, detergents and pharmaceuticals, driven a forklift, worked in a full-body acid-proof hazmat suit, tried to keep his fingers working in a walk-in freezer at -40°F and worked behind radiation shielding. He prefers writing.
