For NaPoWriMo Day 11 the prompt is:
“Today, taking a leaf from Elhillo’s work, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of origin. Where are you from? Not just geographically, but emotionally, physically, spiritually? Maybe you are from Vikings and the sea and diet coke and angry gulls in parking lots. Maybe you are from gentle hills and angry mothers and dust disappearing down an unpaved road. And having come from there, where are you now?”

Two who were once,
Genes of gazillions,
Divergence, corruption, mutation, evolution, convergence.
Rarity, similarity, survival, yet — weakness.
Fittest move on,
Yet, inherit flaws don’t diminish.
Two once; too many unaccounted,
No memories left;
Our origins linger, incredulous, miraculous.
