Poem: Good Morning, Name. 

Good morning, Name.


Day upon day, I carry you with me and

You never cease to change.


I do.


Tracing shapes.

Working within the lines.

Characters shifting—

Keeping it all within the margin.


Startling slants of "V's" initiative shriek of potential hazards–

with ever increasing speeds—

only to crunch together at rock bottom.


Never fear!

Fly upward at the finale—

"I"—

You're going places, Kid.


Alphabetic codes know no character though we're slated to compose ours.


It begins with a name.

  • A poem by Megan Konikowski.
