Keats Conley is a landlocked marine biologist. During her graduate work at the University of Oregon, she travelled the world studying gelatinous zooplankton such as jellyfish, appendicularians, and salps. She then moved back to Idaho’s sagebrush sea to work as research biologist for the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, where she tries to recover Chinook Salmon in a mine-damaged tributary of the Upper Salmon River. She enjoys writing poetry as a means of bridging the seeming divide between science and art. “The God of Rattlesnakes” is part of a broader collection of poems centered around human-animal relationships and biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene.
