At the Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) organized by Gizem Karaali, Pomona College;

In each of the last few years, attendees at the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings have enjoyed eclectic poetry readings. This year’s poetry reading will be augmented by a guest lecture by Seattle mathematical artist/poet Michael Schultheis. Schultheis’s art will be displayed during the session. All who are interested in mathematical poetry and/or mathematical art are invited. Come to share your poetry or simply enjoy the poetry-art-math!

**I know a mathematician . . .**by JoAnne Growney

always busy

counting, doubting

every figured guess,

haply idling,

juggling, knowing

logic, measure, n-dimensions,

originating

playful quests,

resolutely seeking theorems,

unknowns vanish :

wrong xs, ys -- zapped.
