Naming You

A tumble
of consonants
and vowels
roll from my mouth
in a waterfall
of what
I don’t understand.
A name doesn’t
make us
but yours
is a fascination
and a puzzle
of syllables
frozen on my tongue.
Sweet mystery
cloaked in captivity
and I say it
with relish
and infatuation,
the letters
that name you,
make you,
create you.
