Post 150: Sam, Hannah, Molly

by Carol Bass

Silly Afternoon

I have two beautiful daughters
If I had another I might name her Vidalia
feminine and sweet and beloved
but with an edge
of southern stubborn intellect
sure to have her own strange mind
but not dangerous to her
looking at the world differently than most
like Eudora
but Han and Mol are already this inclined

And I have quite a son, SAM
but if I had another
I might call him Cilantro
How flavorful he would be

But he already is,
my son
some spicy sexy boy

Maybe my next dog will be Dahlia
