samovar (cauldron)

Today’s sources of DNA

Were once considered mystical

To the Romani people

And other cultures


Blood, saliva, urine and hair

Were used to counteract o jakhalo

(The Evil Eye)

Bodily sources containing

The personal code

For a particular person.


Somehow, before learning

The art of reading and writing

Or the science of genetics

Our ancestors already

Perceived and located

The essence of our being

What are the other secret ingredients?

Our cauldrons demand

A dollop of Science

A ladle of Magic

And a dash of

Rhythmic stirring and chanting

To create an evolutionary recipe…
