Named By Love - Poem by delilah contrapunctal.... yes, that's how I intended to spell it.........

his name was not 'a dog'
I do not know what his name was in his language
he accepted the name I gave him in my language
and knew mine in both as well
if I say his name aloud he cannot run to me
if I do not say his name aloud
can I take it to mean he is just asleep in another room?
he is often in my dreams, the waking and the sleeping ones
have I deified him in his absence
as he deified me with his presence...?
of course...
the words blend, become parts/wholes of one another....interchangeable
as was intended in an age before they were
names
growing into repeated and recognizable sounds....named
