Signature

I do not sign my name

as I once did as a child, a kid,

with scribbles on a page, a wall.

I do not sign my name

as I once did as a youth, a teen,

with cursive rise and fall.

I do not sign my name

as other times before,

declaring this is truly me

though one can clearly see-

I and my cursive ups and downs

through my life have changed.

Now, I rarely sign my name.

My keyboard does most all.

I touch the magic letters

that I so quickly do arrange

and hope not to mispell

my identity, my name.
