name it

whatever it was 
it wanted us to itself 
it came underneath us 
ripping the rug
acting out a cue 
so tactile memory would fall into place

maybe if we name it 
it will bring us to 
what it had for us 
in the first place

the memory now set
I can recognize 
something I still haven't named 
it was earlier still 
wasn't it? 
do you remember? 

whatever it is 
we should try nameing it now
and in that moment 
claim promise 
change hearts 
bow
to the lesson 

maybe it owns us anyway
already turning us into air and flame
and this process is 
the why that I was carrying on about
