something short…

semblance

i look for my name in
titles of songs, figuring
that if someone else wrote
down the legend,
i’d know what to do next.

sometimes you get lucky,
oftentimes not,
but that don’t mean
a damn thing except
when everything is an option,
is still on the table
waiting on choice
or direction or sign.

when i pull myself from torpor,
i wonder what i’d do
with a less common
name. call me anything you’d
like; it just widens chances
& opportunities.
