We show that the Bakamjian-Thomas construction for relativistic direct interactions can be extended to describe resonances by irreducible representations of the causal Poincaré semigroup. These representations are generated by a Poincaré algebra that incorporates interactions and are characterized by the complex pole position and spin of the resonance.
