Never Name It

By John I. Blair

It may follow you around,
Nipping softly at your heel,
Bounding back behind a table
With a plaintive sound
When you turn to find.

Get to know it, make it tame,
Recognize, but never name,
For the name alone is steel
And binds it to your mind
As strong as any braided cable.

2004 John I. Blair
