Nom De Plume

It’s important

 what you get called

has a name,

one you can take

to the ivory

border

It’s important

what you’re called

is remembered the same,

today recollected

tomorrow

reordered

A mark on the stone

no longer

unknown,

your history and

legacy

rendered

Sapphire crystal

overlord set,

the past

eponymous  

the future
