my name

Now appearing on Haruah: Breath of Heaven

my name

strung on hyphens like rosary beads
my given name, my saints name, my father’s name
my mother’s name, her mother’s name erased


The final in a trio of poems all nurtured by the mentorship of Barbara Jane and encouragement of Chie. My deepest gratitude to both.
