Implanted (once fertilized) Victor
—dividing—

breeds cell upon cell upon cell upon cell
constructing the guts and the framework to house them:
organs, appendages, skin, sinew, bone
above all the neurons that sponsor cognition
inaugurate conscience
hypothesize soul
constructing a Who from a nondescript globule
cum blastocyst, embryo, foetus made whole
extruded by Mom with a grunt, groan, and grimace
delivered by midwife replete with a quirk:

possessed of a prowess initially latent
distinguishing Victor from regular folk -
arousing suspicion once put into practice
(unless he dissembles
unless he revolts
suppresses his birthright
and lives without legend
abandoning Mankind to mayhem).
