At Brooks' Balance

"You're having a little one," 
I say, seeking information 
from my therapist 
(she's considerably
pregnant).  Then, I ask her 
about vocation: 

Why she chose this specialty, 
and did she 
know the baby's sex, 
name, and serial number?  
She says,  No Maybe about it, 
the baby's a girl and
has a name.  

"Did you know the name 
you chose is fame-
ous? A name rarified?
Hemingway's Paris
wife," I clarified, 

And then, I wrote 
this rhyme: a little 
riff for a baby gift: 
"We'll gladly
welcome Hadley, 
(she's a girl), 
into our world."
