Reggie's art class and Kuki's speech class and special guest Tisa....
everyime I perform, mera nam, my name, it feels different.
I heard my voice echo today in a different way - -
One by one, everyone came up and spoke the story of their names...
short prose and deep journeys inwards...
A COLLECTIVE NAMING SONG
from my great great grandmother
who loved the smell of lily
it didn't suit me
so I changed it
trying to live up to
water of life
can be miserable
I might as well live with it and enjoy
never scared of anything
as in archangel
I am not the same
runs deep in my family
like the roots of the coconut tree
