clark (judi)

true love and before married women kept
their own names as if it wasn’t any
thing other than that and Clark no more
or less apt than Marcuse another family another
belonging another gift another signifier
like pretty, in the eye
of the beholding

marcuse clark goldberg

years later having by then been a Clark,
(Mrs. Doug, to differentiate me from Mrs. Eugene)
divorced and again a Goldberg ⪕ Judi ⪖
to differentiate me from Whoopee, and
showing up (surprisingly) at my twenty year
class reunion, it was Marcuse! they shouted.
You made it, Marcuse!! giving the judi
no mention

loyalty

as if an oath
as if fealty

is allegiance,
divesting one

thing is to those
who never knew
the Goldberg
(and everything
that means)
Judy
I was (and am)
the Marcuse
Judy (to start then
Judi
then judi) who
against her mother’s
wishes cut her hair
(off)
to fit in
⧉ better ⧉
as close as I ever
got to being
just like
those around
me
who were
as strange as
I was to them
but
it was the
Marcuse
(and everything
that meant)
not the hair
which was the
belonging

I get it
(now)

we were headed

that there would be hell to pay

(not
the same as getting in
trouble)

there was, we did
more than once more than twice more than
not; we were good

at what we did

Where Am I?
