Stacy's Poem

after community...
for Stacy Szymaszek et al

Your last name that you did not
Change to "Smith" fortunately

Reminds me of innocence
"felt necessities" the photo

Taken of you on a high-school
Softball team or as Robert

Smith of The Cure before
We were all "queers" and querying.

I want to change my name
To my "true name" I want

My true name to be whatever
It is that we share

I want to change my name
To that name before the body

Interrupted the body a celestial
Earth an Iran of praxis

In our indefatigable
And ungarrulous "talk".
