Tricky


Tricky


'That's a tricky one,'
 is all she says, looking down
at the name 'Matt' in our book,
seeing not a name at all but an
estranged family of letters,
sounds, living their lives in
isolation and never becoming-
after blending and blending and blending-
a unit, a name, a noun, a character,
 a life.
 A word.
But to her,
so far,
 it's just tricky.
