Why Hurricanes Were Named After Women

by FRANCO BERTUCCI

They used to name hurricanes after women
and fathers who have daughters know why,
and if I were a woman, I’d be flattered

To be associated with a beautiful force
no man can handle, or understand,
but can only watch in awe-
while holding onto something.

If it were up to me,
we would still name hurricanes after women only
and blame ourselves for the wreckage.

But, if there were a need to balance things out,
we could name mud slides after men.
