Cardinal Forces

They’ve slotted us in since
birth, shaking the tray
so we’ll settle, each
into the slot most shaped
like our form. Model,
prototype, paid us most
when we played
the role. Beat us most
when we defied. One drop
for each specimen, observe
the result. We didn’t know
the dish was plastic
and sterile, the experiment
was form and cut-out,
color and play, get
(not stay) inside the lines.
