Poetry Leaves a ‘Permanent Smirk’

Science poetry is a happening thing … or at least a thing that happens.

Teale, is titled Permanent Smirk and is available as an Amazon Kindle eBook. I really liked it. The critical exercise has me wondering what other science poetry is out there. How is this subgenre fairing? 

Expect more posts on this topic in the future. In the meantime, please read my review to see what I thought of Ms. Teale’s collection. And speaking as an openly biased reader, I recommend giving this collection a try.
