Written for: Poetic Asides #483 – “Write a name poem. Insert someone’s name into the title of your poem. Or name drop someone in your poem. Of course, there are names of places, animals, and other things as well. Or maybe dive into the act of figuring out how to name something–a relationship, an event, or a child. Consider doing this and then NOT giving your poem a name. Have fun with it!”
