      • “I attempted to explore the paradoxical relationship between science and love, the frustration of loving with the head versus the heart.”
    • Neurotransmitters
      • “This piece was inspired by a comment I heard someone say about an article, which said scientists were close to discovering the origins of life due to ongoing algae experiments. He said this was a horrible discovery, and that the origins of life were not something anyone should want to understand, which was an interesting response and one I attempted to explore in this poem.”
    • In Response to Amy’s Question: What is Aspartame?
      • 3rd place poetry winner
