self-caricature by Jeanne

I’m sorry I’m busy
Too busy to burp!
I’m sorry I’m busy
Too busy to furp!

I’m simply too busy
To spell and to count;
Call in relaxers
To stretch me out!


lovingly rhymed for David the Brave
Jeanne Poland

Andrea Barrett said: “I think science and writing are utterly the same thing.

They are completely rooted in passion and desire, if they’re any good at all.

You can fall in love with the natural world in the same way you fall in love with a person.

There’s that same sense of helplessness, of lacking control over how much of your life you want to devote to it.”
