Quote #4

to love is to undress our names (365)

The poem insists that by loving we lose our identity and become everything and nothing at the same time—we lose the masks we wear in society. So Burger King uniforms and Blockbuster nametags get tossed out the window and everyone is free from expectations when they love. Sounds great to Shmoop.
