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.
