Maybe Then



If I say the names I carry forever
If I say there will be no more names
If I say take my name as you have taken the rest
If I go nameless where I go next
If I, nevertheless, go
If I call myself only "I"
If I call myself only "one who is"
If I call myself only "one who was"
If I cease calling myself
If there are no more names
If I say no more
If I only carry
