NAMES PEOPLE SAY LIKE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY

He called me “Babe”,

a name that no one

had ever used before,

and on his lips,

I really was a Babe,

hot lips at forty-four,

feeling desired–and

desirable,

and when he tired

of saying “Babe”,

then he called me “Shorty”

while I gave him several

different names–

“Babe” was certainly one of them,

but mostly I called him”Cowboy”
