I know what to say:
 

“That was love.”
 

And.
 

I know how to say it:
 

That was—
 

our love
 

. . .
 

Yes.
 

I know what to say:
 

“That was love.”
 

“That was love.”
 

And.
 

Yes.
 

I know how to say it:
 

That was—
 

our love
 

That was—
 

our love
 

. . .
 

Yes.
 

I know what to say.
 

And.
 

Yes.
 

I know how to say it.

Ted Richer is author of The Writer in the Story and Other Figurations, published in the UK by Apocalypse Press in 2003. His poetry appears in the anthology Joining Music with Reason (Waywiser Press) along with the work of thirty-three other poets, British and American, chosen by Christopher Ricks.

Art can illuminate even the most elusive and difficult to comprehend ideas. Visual rules and tightly codified visual metaphors help scientists communicate complex ideas mostly amongst themselves, but they can also become barriers to new ideas and insights. Dr. Regina Valluzzi’s images are abstracted and diverged from the typical rules and symbols of scientific illustration and visualization; they provide an accessible window into the world of science for both scientists and non-scientists.
