Wherein the nature of the lowly amoeba, via a mathematical argument, sheds light on modern politics, to whit, the custom of gerrymandering.
An Indian village sheds light on the scope of gender relations. See photo at jxxcarlson.wordpress.com.
Beneath the floor, under the pine slats
Worn smooth by the grit and movement of daily life,
Far beneath the moist loam that pushes up flowers
After the snow melt and the spring showers,
Beneath the sand banks of an ancient river shore
Lies a deep layer of sandstone, the grains joined
Together by years of cohabitation under heat and pressure,
Moderated only by the silent trickle of dissolved stone,
Dripping, oozing into each unfilled crevice.
