Degeneration

In a knot of anticipation, three generations 
thread through each other’s New Year’s Eve.
Three extended families, the children's gene pool.
Each sees their togetherness separately.
The insistence of their conversations running
across their ages, voluble, and unrelated
to their belonging inside of each other,
but related more to their insistence on their 
individuality; that they are the atoms 
in a molecule on the verge of
a reaction threshold.
