What is in a title?

So I have written this poem. The only problem is that I cannot come up with a good title that fits. A title sometimes can make or break a piece of art. I have forgone seeing a moving based on the title alone. Case in point, "Love and a Bullet." I mean really! What were they thinking with that title. Who would want to see something called Love and a Bullet? Poor Treach. Okay, granted, there were a whole lot of things wrong with that movie, but the title sure did not help.

With that said, I am stuck on a title for this poem that I just finished. I really want to publish it but blah. It will have to wait until the appropriate title hits me. It is particularly important to get the title right in a short piece because the title then becomes part of the story itself. So, no title, not poem for me tonight.
