What “words”; I am.

I–have found I am; because you call me.

How else would I be? but, reflections of words in your eyes–on your lips; in your mind.

A father; I am.

A friend;

A paired; unpaired someone; I was, I am.

An expectation; someone. Always–I am

A here, but there, or somewhere else someone;

A brother;

A counsel;

A teacher;

A man…I am–hope always becoming.

A poet?

A song–

A john…an Ahab…a name.

We are each–a spark — flying away eager–we hope a trip to Jupiter–

Away, on a beautiful warm summer night, campfire–the desert breeze dancing on our skin–face–breathing each other, or just I, ourselves

We are all here now–but now just passed away.

–Just trying to look in the mirror.

This is now–I always like being here.

Avery Mann

I am not any of the" Avery Mann"s who pop up when you Google the name; not the one who has written a couple of books...not the media executive...etc...etc. The following definitions were selected from Wikipedia or some such source--too many contradicting citations from other sources; might as well go with the one not known for scholarly accolades, but...used and cited most often: "Avery" is a given name taken from Avery, an English surname that was itself derived from an Old French version of the name Alfred or the Ancient Germanic name Alberich. The meaning of the name is derived from the Old English words aelf, meaning elf, and raed, meaning counsel. "Mann" is a surname of Germanic origin. The word means "man", "person", "husband". "ᛗ" is a single character (rune) in the traditional old-English, Anglo Saxon, runic alphabet, which denotes "Mann". "Mann" is also a surname of Jatt origin. Words, letters, all are just signs--intended to facilitate identification and then communication. That is the only sort of Avery or Mann that I chose to be.
