Our penultimate selected poem is another from Rachael Briggs: "A Coupling of Puma and Ooze".
Rachael Briggs is a research fellow in philosophy who splits her time between the Australian National University and Griffith University. She is currently thinking about the nature of wellbeing (she maintains, in the face of apparent counterexamples, that it consists in getting what you want) and about the best way to do decision theory. She also writes poetry in her spare time. Her first collection of poems, Free Logic, is available from University of Queensland Press.
