Poetry And Science

Poetry and Science

Science tries to answer some great questions,

in fact the greatest questions of our day.


At very least, it offers suggestions

for how to frame these questions, anyway.


This role is one that poets, too, have played. Both correlate their data to convey their particular premise and persuade, or at least to accurately portray life’s landscape that they’re able to survey (with focus free from lies or confusions). Both offer cues as to how others may arrive with them at the same conclusions. More fluid, verse permits meanings be mixed. Science prefers that its answers stay fixed.
