Name calling

Names engraved


on newborn skin

by people afraid;

of dust,

of death,

of free falling,

of not knowing,

of forgetting,

of disintegrating,

of vagabonds,

of night skies,

of closed eyes,

of too wild,

of too dark,

of sadness,

of purposelessness,

of loose holds,

of holes- both black and soul,

of new,

of orphans,

of bad PR,

of empty houses,

of vast plains,

of deep lakes,

of little idle lanes,

of nothing short of paradise;

and of allowing that we never meant more-

or less for that matter.
