ON A STUDY OF FAMILIAL RISK OF INCONTINENCE

Author Information

With panoramic view you study scenes

of common people trying to distill

the hidden liquid essence of their genes,

accounting for their tendency to spill

the truth to their descendants. Who will stand

the test that they are lying? Who will leak

a story that is strong or pale and bland

of secrets that are straight and yet oblique?

You estimate your risks with confidence

addressing larger questions when you frame

confounded tests of great significance:

Why people are the people they became.

Regardless of what answers you may see,

the question is: To P, or not to P.

—Rolv T. Lie
