For Mom, who chose the spelling of my name after getting her epidural.

Selected with purpose
I bare it with pride

Because it’s unique
I may have to say over
What letters stay solo
And what letters repeat

The spelling was chosen
To make me unlike the rest

If I could have done it myself
I wouldn’t change it back
To the simpler version
All boring and flat

Usually there is a question I’m asked,
“What was your mother thinking?”
