INHERITANCE

the body knows it destination
its maps are carved in bone
and its way marked with tokens
left by lovers living and long dead --
foreboding chromosomal remnants
passed cell to cell
in lethal combination,
dark genetic tomes memorized
and recited by back and vein,
liver and brain,
the cells awaiting subtle
environmental cues
or counting the years,
the deal sealed
before you saw the light of day
