nano-birthing chamber

Diamond Nanotubes

Diamond nanowires are prepared inside carbon nanotubes by thermal annealing of diamantane-4,9-dicarboxylic acid under a hydrogen atmosphere.

nano-birthing chamber

infant cables in birthing chamber, reflexively bump, identical in the tub.
spidery filament flips in one bound: challenge to other nanostructures.
lost, lacking choices: fate not faith. blink and groan. stare and moan.
fluid in full slosh mode, suckling in pulp. dimples. blobs. formations
at the site of development. protective effect confirmed, uncompromisingly.

in grey waves, they majestically spiral and peak. filaments fracture,
independently race ‘round centrifugal tubules. relentless rotation.
ripples pass. progeny of the populace. reasonless, irrationally irritating,
come to golden light, on silvery rivers: (calm in blue space.) rubble fills the void,
incinerating contamination. struggle. wind filled. (never enters the hole.)

bubbles crack, smack and rumble: toothlessly grind to rubbery pulp.
super-novae, many, many magnitudes smaller, a perplexing state
of isolation, in a venue where surface tension creates cacophony.
no human will hear their dialogues and screeches: design of creation.
not one nano-being will sensorially recollect this first experience.

rumbles and moils in distracting high frequency. tenuous tendrils.
temporal travesty. trickery. tunneling. and then tranquil connectively.
unfamiliar abstractions. unexpected measurements on the boundary.
patches are blank spots in their memory: a leak in techno-verse.
fiber of space-damaged, roughly, transformedly processed matter.

they share a common experience: crests of hyper length cosmological waves ―
but smaller in number, surrounded by dense mathematics. jerky gravitational
spin down, phase factor one, conjugated complexity, nestling intentions.
in the birth canal: globes, branches, ringlet-tubes and electron waves.
nano-baby cables percolate into birth. emergence. vitalization. actualization.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. Can sure be used for some wonderful things, but then it can be used for many not so wonderful things too. Great insight with the verse you bring to light.

  2. we went to basel university with our department a while ago and heard a presentation about nano technology and the many possibilities that come with it…i found it totally fascinating… it is certainly a wonderful thing if used wisely

  3. Hit that out of the park. Right out. Into another universe.

    That’s just sublime writing.

  4. A brave new world captured here.

  5. You’ve got me flummoxed

  6. I love the the techno alliteration in this. I can hear a little scare future in this poem. Very readable…. Thank you

  7. I don’t understand most of it, but I really like the way it sounds and the way it feels when I read it.

  8. ha. i have missed your science poetry…i find it fascinating…and though i dont know it all…you do open my mind a bit more…and make it move….

  9. GrammyMouseTails

    very bizarre… I suppose better than being born in & through a test tube! Faythe @GMT with linky

  10. So interesting – you’ve given birth to great sounds! k.

  11. Right away this made me think of The Matrix. Crafty work.

  12. Wow! There’s a lot going on in this one. I got lost!

  13. It is always a treat to read your words. That’s why I subscribe.
    Mark Butkus

  14. I like the design of creation ~

  15. Nano tech with all its intricacies! One only wonders at all the possibilities! Nicely Tammy!


  16. This appeals to so many parts of me. The techno nerd, the logophile, the science geek and of course the poet. Intricate and sublime. Bravo Tammy.

  17. Fascinating, there is music in all these technical terms… Science fiction as poetry, a nice twist ( helix?)

  18. And I thought such an ‘instance’ would be more of a ‘burn baby burn’ fusion and expulsion. Not so it seems. This was fun to read for all the right and wrong reasons. Good ‘shtufffs’!

  19. What a lot I learned from this poem! Complex and exciting and clever.

  20. ..this & the coming new things sounded great but deceivingly threatening… smiles… loved the reading with a quality tone…

  21. Amazing but somewhat scary if this is what is on the horizon! Well expressed….

  22. 1emeraldcity

    Scary..yet fascinating. Good job!

  23. non Romantic conception 🙂 great job Tammy: you deliver this subject with skillz 🙂

  24. Fascinating, this is great !
