Given Name

Write it out and read it aloud.

All three names passed on with emphasis:
your novel will be biblical and well-known;

you might try to become king
and then attempt to disappear
whether or not you succeed; 

under the best conditions
you will moderate;

there will still be storms
(blowing in between the lines);

much will come of age as you die
though you will see
events as continuations

processes, not the dots and 
dashes on the chronology line that you were 
lead to believe in for twenty years;

don't count numbers - they don't add much.

And forget about recipes:
fail to memorize poems
that tell you what to do.
