“Stone Queen”

If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, my fossil poem, “Stone Queen,” runs through the end of the month at Abyss & Apex.

The poem was inspired by Sue, the T Rex who lives in the Field Museum in Chicago.  I definitely recommend the book Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law and My Life, by Peter Larson, the man who discovered her (and several other remarkable tyrannosaurus specimens). If you like dinosaurs, the book will fill you with the urge to go dig one up!

Here’s a great picture of Sue in Chicago:
