They said something mean about me
and didn't notice it was mean.
So my heart wandered into the rainy night without them
and found a canopy
to hide under.
My eyes started seeing through things.
Old self through new self.
My flexible body
It's hard to describe but true;
I grew another head
with better ideas
inside my old head.

Recall your classmates Infographs and presentations on Extreme Environments. What makes each environment extreme? How do explorers overcome these obstacles? How do organisms survive there? Why do we explore extreme environments? How does technology allow us to better explore these harsh lands?
