Linda Bierds, First Hand and The Seconds.
Bierds does some pretty remarkable things with stories taken from history and science (and the history of science).
First Hand includes a series of poems about Gregor Mendel and his experiments with cross-breeding pea plants.
The Seconds revolves around a Spanish king with insomnia but also covers Vermeer and Zelda Fitzgerald. Really
This would be a good spot to include a picture of my favorite book or CD.
But I ain't gonna right now, 'cause I'm too lazy. Thththppt.
