Nom de Vie

I remember when you said you’d take my name
not opposed, not against, and with a smile
now you’ve changed yours to a form
you used to say you didn’t like
Some camouflage or concealment from yourself
a reinvention or reimagining or reincarnation
of the ego, and an affirmation of grief and loss
a brave mask to show the untrained eye
veiling yourself in plain sight
