"Alias"





“Alias”

A parcel returned.
‘Addressee Not Known!’
I phoned to check
But the address was right.
“What name are you living under?”
He told me.
“What’s that,” I asked, “an alias?”
No, No,” he said,
“That’s my proper name,
The one you use is my alias!”
Good Grief!
I’ve only known him
Forty four years!
It was easier in the old days
When none of us
Had surnames
And I was just known as
Restless!
