Stirring : A Literary Collection

Aidan Baker


    the letters of your name -- so
common, too ever-present, too often heard -- still a scar
to my ears, a scar that refuses to heal

    purity in flame

         kataros --
   the origins of your name -- Greek --
& the meaning of mine, in Gaelic --

         little fiery one --

& the semantics of naming
   the synchronicity of ours (though whether it
     should signify anything, though whether I should read
             into the correlation what I do, or not) delights

Location: Toronto, Canada
