Séamus Isaac Fey
Sonnet for my new name

Did you wait for me

in the riverbed, under

a smooth stone?

Did I have to earn you,

like a Chicago summer?

A seed sprouting

in harsh conditions?

Stand in a long line

full of crossed fingers, 

all the while

you lit up the marquee.

Can I keep you?

When they call

you, will I turn my head?
