The genes, they say
play a role in species.

My gardener pinpoints
the exact trees from
which large coconuts come from.

Such is the stamping of the quality,
he segregates according to taste
and size. it is genes again.

On a visit to an Orthopedic
hear the term “genes”
as he examines my knee.

A reference to the family
more so to my father
who had similar ailment.

He concludes, “it is
in the genes”. I give
a wry smile.

Genetics is omnipresent.
I reconcile. Like father.
like daughter at least in this.
