I will not apologize
For the spelling of my name
Even though
Auto-correct thinks
It must be wrong.
It is right.
There is an A
In the middle.
I do not appreciate
It being automatically shortened
To Cathy
Unless you first knew me
By the nickname.
Then it is OK.
Then my aunt with the same name
Was alive.
Now I have earned the right
To be Catharine
With an A
In the middle.
Someone must carry the name
