Divisive poetry


Pictured:  a single rod-shaped bacterium holds a pen in one of its flagella and writes on a sheet of paper, with the words of the in-progress poem magnified for the reader: "anyone lived in a pretty how biofilm / (with up so floating many nutrients) / lag division replication quiescence / it signaled its didn't it divided its did". The bottom caption is the author's name: "e. e. coli".

They're going to take away my poetic license for this one.
