Haiku H113

Will someone love weed so much
As to name their kid
Mara Juanita?

Notes to this poem…

Hey, people have done far worse to their kids for names, OK? Someone might have to be stoned to do this, but if they love their “weed” enough, it’s not improbable they might be stoned when it comes time to name their baby. As weed becomes legal in more places, getting stoned when naming your kids will just be like doing so after going for a smoke outside.

I see there seems to be a clothing brand called Mara Juanita. I’m sure somebody is named this as well, like a Mara Juanita Morales on Facebook. However, I don’t know if that person would have been named for the love of weed.

If someone were stoned enough to name their kid Mara Juanita for weed, specifically, they might just as well name a boy that and not a girl for whom the names are meant to be. That’s why I wrote “kid” and not “girl” in the haiku.

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
