Please Let Me Call You by Your True Names

by Mark Chmiel

Someone recently sent me the following note…

“Mark”
I rarely call you this

But you feel like a Mark right now
A mark upon my life

A mark of brightness in a grey background
A deutsche mark

Meaning worth
Meaning impression

Meaning different (than others)
Thank you for being you

Thank you for being
Thank you for Marking
