“My Name” / Memorable Fancies #837

[“The name they hear called out in earnest derision or displeasure by parents and teachers.” – Andrei Codrescu]

       It’s distressing to have a name, to hear it used by others in tones of derision or command. They think that when they call my name they have captured me, like a butterfly in its pinned throes; they think they know me. But they are wrong:

       No name names me.
