From Delilah Supreme-Creator - Poem by Morgan Michaels
Then, there was Delilah Supreme-Creator.
The picturesque name wasn't a translation, as he'd first thought, taking the chart from the MA.
'What th...? '
'She changed her name', informed the MA, with a shrug...'legally'.
Patients in his clinic often switched names. They were Dominican, after all. Naively, Donnie suspected a criminal past their chief motivation and foolishly alleged as much one day in the sign-out room.
'Oh, no', the MA in charge replied, a little defensively, 'we Spanish have two last names. Sometimes we choose one for legal reasons. Over the other'.
She seemed to think the abundance of nomenclature spoke for itself.
'Yeh, to dodge the Fed', cracked Donnie, waggishly.
'But', she explained, 'those who changed had an easier time with Immigration', a name-change often an integral part of the process.
'For this, there were easy precedents', he told himself.
But, 'oh', he answered, skepticism at full throttle, 'and Delilah Supreme Creator is the un-hyphenated version of what? - Supreme Creator-The Sun And The Moon'?
Even the MA laughed at that point and admitted her a special case.
