Nomen Clay Turn

Call me by the name of the ocean
unless I am a tempest
then name my shrew

call me by the name of the shadow
under a moonlight
that demands a day of days

to become the best value
super best on sale now
it's me, it's you, what is us

is generally known by capital letters
perhaps with a period after you
and following s

while you learned to believe in

the rest of us were forgetting to see
more than the number one as well
last to translate the text

that said the destiny of I
was to become human, not yet kind
an anti-person, loving concepts

with the kind of distaste for reality
that makes one never eat.
