The Names For One
By Sue Cowing
If spaghetto is a single strand of spaghetti
and one Swiss mountain is called an alp,
is Yeto the name for a single Yeti?
Is one rapid beat of the heart a palp?
Does one foot slosh in a galosh through the mud?
Is a single dish-soap bubble a sud?
Is Philippine Island even a place?
Does one measle mean you have a light case?
If not, perhaps I can make amend
by bringing this one poem to an end
