Identity

Ancestry,
DNA noise,
Genetic marketization,
All this bunk
Taking, “Who am I?,”
And the search
For an identity
To a level of manipulation
Much greater than
The random assigning of categories
Based on skin tone,
Financial status, or
Religious hubris.
How about our identities be based
On the goodness of our hearts,
Not the statistical analysis
Of our collective genetic gumbo?

Just be you,
Do no harm,
Let that be you legacy.
