83. It's funny, though, because the hard sciences are full of great figures
for poetics. I published poetry through out the college years and that work drew from hard science courses 'way more than any of the social sciences or the lit courses. Science has all these great, specific descriptors and verbs and artefacts in it, not like lit, which tends to generate mushy abstraction or from social science, which tends to long-winded, forgettable phrases.
