“Mendeleev’s Mandala” is the most recent collection of poetry from Kansai-based writer Jessica Goodfellow.

Each poem encompasses more than a world in a grain of sand; there is a universe on every page of this slim tome. Goodfellow invokes everything from binary theorems to ancient literature, and most of the poems transcend a sense of physical space and are not specifically tied to Japan. A running theme of displacement and reconsidering boundaries is the only commonality within these widely varied poems.
