DNA

cheetah face woman

She was patchwork
She was
counterfeit
plagiarized
poly cotton
implanted id
She was volatility merged with chaos
She’s why
neither borrower nor lender should humans be

She was gourmet blended DNA
She was
germinated
grafted
harvested
discarded
She was manufactured mammal no one had a taste for
She’s why
neither borrower nor lender should humans be

She was hope in a hopeless form
She was
too animal to be human
too busy clawing her way into her humanity to care
too human to let our disapproval matter
too full of life to die
She will test our humanity through her existence
She’s why
neither borrower nor lender should humans be
