Until I spoke his name
he was nothing more
than a set of gestures.

Once I had spoken his name

he came to me and
became a flower.

Won't someone speak my name,

one matching my colour and scent,
as I spoke his name?
I want to come to him
and become his flower.

We all of us

want to become something.
We want to become unforgettable significance
I for you and you for me.
