Lucy, Lucy, Lucy (Or: Story Choices)

When I think of the name “Lucy,”
first I think of the character
from DRACULA, by Bram Stoker.
She died helplessly, cluelessly.

Then Lucy from PEANUTS—grumpy
but pure will, love her or hate her.
Finally, gone to her maker,
Lucy Gordon—model, beauty.

One is just words. One’s a drawing.
Lucy Gordon is memory,
made of whatever thoughts are made,

as real, now, as someone dreaming
or reading words, one more story
someone must choose to see displayed.
