Names to be Reckoned With

 




NELLIE

Supersonic and preapproved
At the sapphire level.


LEBRON OR JORDAN

Who had the greater impact?
I want to say LeBron.


GIANNA

Two tall boys
Wouldn’t be enough
For her.
She’s tough.
Everybody in line can see
She’s buying them for me.


SAW HIM AND JUNIOR BROWN

At Bumbershoot,
Oh,
I forget what year.


COURTNEY

She’s not even real.
Right?


SHELLEY CAN TELL

With 98 percent accuracy
A book by its cover,
And whether I’ll like it.


A MESSAGE FROM ISAAC AND ISRAEL

May your feet be wrapped in velvet
And your coffin lined with birdsong.


SHIRTLESS JONATHAN

I got a call from Shirtless Jonathan the other day.
You remember Shirtless Jonathan?


PLATO

We found 41 records in 12 states for Plato.
The top state of residence is California, followed by New Jersey.
The average Plato is around 52 years of age,
With around 50% falling into the age group of 41-60.


AHAB

In L.A. on business.


ME AND TREEZA

We got back together.
Conversationally or whatever.
In fact she called me last night.


SCARLETT

Scarlett stole the chartreuse snake.

 

MY MAN OSSIAN

And his queen
Hot Dog Buns.
They’ve been together this long.
Something’s working.
Let sleeping kitties twitch.

  1. How about that Hemet Historic with your name. It that a commemorative photo for your work there?

    Nice group of names. These are gem worthy.
    I think back to another post where you did a series of names.

    Could be the chapter for the next book of names.

    Also, I wonder about an audio (soundcloud) of reading some of the poems of names. Does Kindle allow audio?
