i remember
every single
year -- my stocking
always had a big
F-A-T chocolate
letter “R”

massive fancy
pressed “R” simply
for me -- although;
grateful for that one “R”
something tells me i would
have been over the moon
if i'd found an “A”-“N”-“I”-“A”
to complete my name
-- only because when
i was growing up
my name was
always the odd
one out

save one
comical tale 
-- in my last year
of secondary school
i sat beside another
with the of the same name
& it only took 18

years -- lol
