    She paid me in the kind of pennies that change hands when someone says PENNY FOR YOU THOUGHTS. I pay the thoughts forward and there is a shower of pennies from Heaven.

The author's notes are of interest, but the style of writing enables the reader to also seek their own connections.

Before the cell divides, the DNA must be copied. How can the helix possibly unwind at 100 rpm during the duplication?

When the cell is ready to divide, what ...

Thought-farmer keeps many aquaculture tanks,
Draws water from his own well to fill them,
He pours in his tinctures and starters

One has shingles willing to overlap against weather,
In one are hinges that only love to swing.
