I heard this recited once and really liked it but could never find it. The main theme is "This name" and I know it contains the part "This name, this one name..." Thanks!

Good luck, it's probably under copyright:

"...I finally know, beyond mere name, theory, temptation, its journey, which arrives, finally, at your name, that is how I remember it, the final and ultimate... no other choice or call it motion call it reaching--- it arrives, j'arrive - oh! the apt poetry of that! - yes, that is precisely it! coming, I arrive!, finally I arrive!, after all this time, years of hiding my I, and you unclasp it in a moment's imbalance, harmony, they're the same it turns out, and where I arrive is in the jubilant passionate enunciation of your name, this one name, no other, and how I say it, apocalyptic tone, tone beyond tone, tone I cannot designate, now, no, I could only SING it, with my eyes, that would be the only way, no other way possible, I cannot quote it, just as I cannot quote what arrives in my ear from you, enphoned, say, the shiver of breath, wind through leafless branches, and on..."
