Labaratory Technician of words, Shanny Jean Maney turns plain language into curious, knowledge-hungry poetry. Alarm clocks, dogs and Jeff Goldblum wait in the center of the Venn Diagram where the mysteries of the intangible philosophers of our day intersect. This book stands as a reminder that our hearts can hurt from knowing too much, our laugh lines can deepen and that the nature of both poetry and science are one in the same.
