Gene Tag

Carved is a mark on my thigh
an imperfect rhombus it bears
opposite and unequal sides
of two pairs.

An un-equilateral, some might say
My Identifier, I christened it.
From others a distinct separator
this gene tag

hidden in an obscure place
this peculiar trace
colored with shame that blind
as a child

burned into my flesh by
hands unknown with minds
its purpose, I now divine.

A bridle biting deep
this restraint that whispers
words of lies and fear
with pride, I now wear.
