Bill Mayer lures us into the rich physicality of a desire that not only animates the features upon the mask of the real, but enlarges our yearning for what lies behind.

In The Uncertainty Principle, Bill Mayer lures us into the rich physicality of a desire that not only animates the features upon the mask of the real, but enlarges our yearning for what lies behind. Many of these poems take as subject the encounters of the poet during an extended stay on the island of Paros in Greece. They demonstrate how language that intentionally draws little attention to itself can reflect the subtlest occlusions and luminosities of experience.



BILL MAYER has traveled widely, spending extended time in Vermont, England, Greece, Hawaii, Germany, France, Italy, and Austria. He is also a professional photographer and importer of German and Austrian wine. His first book, Longing, was published by Pangaea Press in 1991. He lives in Berkeley.
