Poem: Recipe of the Day

My friend uploaded a pic
Of a train-beheaded man
With words superimposed at the bottom
‘Will Meet You, Love, in Afterlife’.

‘Who’s that girl he’s dead for?’
I typed in the comment box.
My Facebook buddies hopped on
To set my pulse racing
With the volley of absurd quickies.

‘It’s blind love, dear.’
‘Did the hot guy die for me?’
‘It looks he sacrificed for me, sweetie.’
‘Cute, wait for me in afterlife.’
‘Your pics are amazing, Ruma.’

The pic was a perfect recipe
To start my day and rue for an unknown figure
Who was the subject of our gossips
During the lunch break.
