Punnett Squares & Open Chairs

They’ve got redheads and green-eyed
and sisters with curly and
some with straight, and at this rate
the world may never know who’s who
or how it all
(dominant, recessive,
genotype, phenotype,
came together
but when Mama cooks the Sunday stew
and the fosters and the steppies
and the birthed and the adopted
and the yoursmineours
and the exchange student from Sweden
and the neighbor kids who needed surrogates
all come together and clasp hands
and share hearts,
family’s family
and the only science needed
is the alchemy of love.
