Genes, defining strands of DNA,
Flick on, flick off –
Like a light switch –
Building, forming, shaping
Mind, body, spirit
In the sinewy spiral of creation:
I am unforgiven; he is a good.
I am boring; she is interesting.
I am unworthy; they are gifted.
i am useless…i am nobody…
i am…i Am…I AM…[insert words].
Sticks and stones.
