Sing Your Name
My name is Yellow.
Sing your name, child
Sing your name the way your mother did when she chose it,
full of hopes and dreams and wonder at what you might become.
Sing her name.
"My little sunshine...
I will swallow you in the center of my petals, my black-eyed susan.
All four walls vibrating your name."
She is here! A little sun-king.
To love and to hold ’til death does its part.
To absorb the brunt, to shield what the light might wield.
Sing your name.
(whispers) … Laurie
My name is yellow.
