Last night I listened to Amy Ludwidg VanDerwater talk with Valerie Bang-Jensen and Mark Lubkowitz about the intersection of poetry and science. This smart and funny conversation is part of Heinemann’s terrific podcast series. You should take a minute to listen if you haven’t already.
This conversation reminded me that for the past few years, I’ve celebrated Pi Day with a Pie poem. This year, I used 3.1459 syllables to structure my poem.
