The New Name, Anonymous

My husband and I named my wife

In the corner of a Wendy’s parking lot.

Me, scrolling through baby names —

Him, eating a cheeseburger.

Kylie, Kim, Kyla, Keisha

He puts the car in reverse.


Gears shift, blinkers flash —

She pulls out onto the road

And my wife and I drive home together.
