At a point today the human being
I co-created will have existed on our earth
For exactly one full decade

As with all vanity one-off side-projects
Risk sidles right up against reward
Joyful bundles of terrifying rouge monsters

Wholly autonomous lifeforms
Without confusion of genetic lineage
Vicious cycles of learning and teaching

Alone among strangers together
Tiptoeing on iceberg tips
Data from a well-orchestrated study
