The Name

Ever since Wednesday night,
I too have been thinking of my favourite name for God.
Top of my shortlist is Belovèd,
it reminds me of a time when my heart was tender
before it was calcified by the acid of life.
Belovèd says to me, be loved
it says: be love,
it reminds me of your El Roi
the God who sees and still loves me.
