Names

August 29, 2009

Over all those years your name wore a path through my mind. It meant the one other person. I’m married now and a secret fear is to have it slip out in place of his.

Must we learn to forget in order to unbind the dead from the world of the living? Does this name I hold in my mind summon you from freedom? I want to let you go, but you are written into my memory, my body.
