William Carlos Williams said it's tough to get the news from poems but I think it shouldn't be. So I'm offering up verse based on current topics in science news.

I carry both the reporter's iconic fedora and the poet's license: I've published two books of poetry— The Scientific Method and The Doors of the Body—as well as numerous nonfiction articles discussing science, including coverage of the botany of Plants Vs. Zombies and the best tourist sights on Titan, Saturn's largest moon.

So where do you come in?

While some magazines do publish science poetry, it's still a rather interstitial topic without a clear place to call home. But that doesn't mean people aren't interested in reading poetry to keep up with science news.

Every month, I'll write and send out to all Patrons a piece of verse (recently, metered and rhyming) about a topic which made news in the science world in the previous four weeks.
