Several years ago, during a different time
I was gifted with the name Baffy.
While indeed this was a serious typo
of my actual name, I don’t think it was a mistake.
I like to believe that this nickname is derived
from the verb baffled which means many things.
I am bewildering and perplexing
I am a puzzle and I am confusing.
I mystify and confuse many.
I am all of these things and more.
I am hard to understand
even when I try to make things clear.
Do I baffle you? So what? Get on board.
Doesn’t everyone need a little mystery in their life?
