Contribution to our USM-wide Poem-In-Your-Pocket Day activity. The Center for Writers / USM’s poets are going to be distributing poems to as many departments as possible. We’ve been trying to find poems that somehow relate to the departments we chose. I picked Marine Science (yep, not too difficult to find one there) and … Polymer Science. That one was a little harder. I settled on a chemistry-themed poem about the sublimation point.
After last night’s reading by Farrah Field and Jared White (and their patient baby boy), and today’s workshop (“playshop”) and reading by the charming Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie it really does feel like poetry month. I am still in the running in our small poetry marathon, — everyone writes a poem a day for the whole month of April. We’ve passed the half-way point already, and many interesting poems have been shared back and forth. I love poetry month!
