Ballade – it’s like a ballad. Only classier.

Elissa Malcohn, writing at Chronicles from Hurricane Country, has a poem inspired by my post on scanning the brains of salmon as they smelled water from the stream they were hatched in.

It’s called “Scent and sensibility,” and you can read it here.

And it is wonderful.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had something I’ve written inspire poetry. After I wrote an article in The Skeptical Inquirer on the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence, I received a poem called “Digging graves” in the post. I probably still have it in storage somewhere.
