    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.

When the cell needs a certain segment of coding, how does the double helix unzip to the right place?

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 ...

The Lawn Grass Elf

It was during my Walkman summer
I learned my lesson not to walk home late
To my low-rent street
While immersed in a violin concerto…
Suddenly two punks pulled a knife and gave me
A pretty heavy frisson of mortality.
After that I saved my Walkman
For walking near the park of Roses.
The landscaped and trellised yards
