Briefly: today’s metrical pleasure

In today’s Stanford Report (a daily report to the university community, three stories a day), the lead story has the teaser head:

Minuscule nanostraws

Ah: a double dactylic line: SWW SWW! Now to work it in as the first line of a full 8-line double dactyl.

Suggestions welcome.

(Oh yes, the nanostraw story is here.)

    Enter the membranes that
    Cover the cell.
    What a great tool for a

    Needing cell innards, he
    Sucks out some gel.
