A first February Morn’ with

Mixed feelings

Satisfied with my recovery of

A hip joint op

But dissatisfied with my lack

Of energy to travel downtown

And fetch my ailing laptop

From its first repair.


Spoke to Mrs IRA and she had

Suddenly second thoughts

About my hi-tech design –

Too expensive she said

While B started to scold me

Calling her ‘my girlfriend’

But then she might be right

What polite talk and interests

Are concerned

I agreed with her to meet on

Saturday and she sighed with



Hurtful words from B

Stabbed at me

So I fled into the Internet

Thanks to smart phones.

This time around I found

My sweetheart

From student days: ‘M’

She even calls herself by her

Nickname as derived from


I called Simchi in my poetry

Even if she did not respond

To my Email greetings

An important place in my heart

Remained still for her.
