Maybe Four

If I could have any name
I’d roll my tongue and say
Three

Because three time’s the charm
And it’s three times,
This time,
Or maybe it’s four---
Je ne sais pas…

It’s difficult to be an empty mesh
Of nothing
When you’re
An empty mesh
Of nothing---

It’s hard to roll your tongue...

It’s difficult to slay the demons
In your heart and mind
When all that you are filled with is just that.

If I could have any name
I’d roll my tongue
And bite my cheek

If I could have any name I’d ask
For yours.
Because it’s sweeter to the tongue
Than rolling r’s and drinking water
And it’s shameful just to say it more than once.
