Limon returns to "naming" later in the book, in "Against Belonging." In the poem, the speaker relates that, as a child, when she learned the names of "all the grasses, the tide pool animals, the creatures of the redwoods," the process was "more like creation" than science but that, as an adult, she gives "names to everything now because it makes / me feel useful." However, sometimes she resists the limitations involved in "naming" herself in deference to "what cannot be tamed, what shakes off citizenship, / what draws her own signature with her body / in whatever dirt she wants."
