Inheritance

I wrote this poem for a project about bodies and vulnerability. You can learn more about this project in the post “The Self in Study.”

The main inspiration was genetic inheritance. My dad was in the middle of his treatment for leukemia at the time and I was reflecting on the amount of cancer that occurs in my family.

I’m sharing this poem with you as I return to my family home for the first time since my dad passed away a year ago.
