poem names

some poems have names
as poetic titles
while often as riddles
can serve as a frame

some poems hold names
within their stanzas
pronoun extravaganzas
an anonymity game

some poems possess names
proper and dapper
of pauper or rapper
as stains for the brain

some poems change names
as they age over time
trade truth for rhyme
yet the poem’s the same
