Monday Self Portrait: Never Again

From my poetry chapbook Calypso Red

Lesson Learned

Once my name was
I conjured my disappearance
not through incantations
or potions concocted
from essence of larkspur
and eye of newt
but by hiding my light
in a man's shadow.

Now my name is
Never Again.

Wow, this is fantastic. Love both the image and the verse. I shall bookmark this one.
