Maternal algorithms (poetry for moms and math nerds)

I am the sum of the ages
beginning before my mother,
before my grandmother,
and before my grandmother's mother.

I am the product of their matriarchal choices,
the quotient of their actions, reflections, and self-images.
I am the difference of their generations.

And I bequeath the equation of this inheritance
to the matrices of my living legacies.

    aww Cas, you sweet talker you, now you're starting to grow on me with your talk of Carl Jung. If you mention anything about Robert Burns I'll have to buy you chocolates...
