Names

 

We try to remember names

we struggle to pronounce some names

we come up with names for our children

some women have hyphenated names

we name the date

we name our pets

we name places In Memory Of

sometimes we use

the name of God in vain

then we sometimes call each other names

which is worst use of all for a name

call me by name but please

do not call me names

sticks and stones may break my bones

but names dwell in the heart forever.

each name
a thorn
piercing the heart.
