POEM: talisman

talisman

I met a little boy with your name
he caught me by surprise when he said it
I’ve mostly avoided using your name
as a means of moving forward
but other people have it
the name itself has only the power I give it
so I called him by his name quite a lot
as I left he told me he loved me
I don’t believe in fate
or in a higher consciousness
but I’m smart enough to be grateful
when the universe sends me a gift
