The Fit

what did they think when
they named you
did your mother call you
the name of a favorite friend,
a relative, someone who
left this earth, perhaps a
character in a book, or a biblical
name, Rebekah or Obadiah,
or Milcah daughter of Zelophehad
did your father call you his name
with a junior attached
what did your name mean
is it a fit, or loose, sagging
did they spend hours looking
through books, checking for
popular names, seeking
unusual names
did you grow into your name
