Polar Bodies – Sydney Sheltz-Kempf

Polar Bodies

As I’ve matured into a clone of you
I’ve always wondered
how I didn’t end up as a polar body
since we’ve always been
polar opposites.

Sydney Sheltz-Kempf is a current PhD candidate at Western Michigan University in Biological Sciences.  Her previous work can be found in Intima: Journal of Narrative Medicine and The Scene and Heard.  Her first chapbook titled Adding Up Forever: A Memoir will be published by The Poet’s Haven in Fall 2018.
