Buildings, bridges, mountain passes
serve to honor some by
placing names before the masses.
History will neglect me,
this is my fear,
that I will forgotten be
unless my name is recorded here.
In the interest of eponymosity
before this narcissistic world I flee
won’t you please name something after me?
