How do I love thee brain? Let me count the ways.
I love thy neurons which communicate with the rest of my body.
I love thy neocortex for allowing my senses to work.
My soul reaches out to you.
I love you to your cerebellum for integrating
my senses with movement.
I love your river-like blueness and your ideal grace.
This piece was composed during the May 14th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students were given a tour of various human organ systems, and allowed a chance to explore them with microscopes. Afterwards, students were then asked to compose an ode to an organ of their choice. Herein we present pieces concerning love or hatred for parts of the body. More pieces from this class can be seen here.
