George Instead?

having an ordinary name 

(Think cow or child’s toy)

Means misnomer–

Betty, Becky, pieces left out

Or added

My favorite-gleanor

So close 

To gleaner

I ask myself

What if it was George?  Harold? Londerson? Jamal?

Would I still 

Recognize your voice

Trace the familiar 

Lines along 

Your hands, your face?

Your gaze holds firm

Your love unswerving

Written, Word
