They call to me
yelling shouting jeering
And this—

not my name
never never
My Name—

is all
everything
I have known.

Eyes, pale eyes—
follow glance slide past
me.

Hate,
burning burning burning!
Everything burns.

We walk
here
surrounded by them.

They stare
calling calling
nothing new, never new.

not my name
never never
My Name.

We, Us, Me.
All the same
to them.

We, Us, Me.
Not the same
At all.

Freedom Liberty Equal—
not her bell
not for Us.

We walk
they call
still calling—

not my name
never never
My Name.

Us
Our Name
Names they give

Equal
not us
they pretend—

no voice
not us
not equal.

Out Rights
Our Equality
My Name.
