mendelian

we are nearly
the exact same
carrying millennia
of broken code
creating a false
sense of self
bits of static
longing for the
embrace of the hive
we have scattered
so far away from

fireflies glowing
desperately trying
to attract a
similar pulsation
to vibrate through
our incidental
existences so we
can feel as if
we belong here
even for a few scant
seconds spent not alone

victims of rampant
mendelian inheritance
a conglomeration of
faulty survival traits
evolved into wan deflections
of who we were meant to be
trailing bequeathed fears
into myopic malignance
flashing signals into the
cold dark of the abyss seeking
salvation in similar sighs
