Poem By Gulam Abbas Hashmi
Our anniversary is approaching.
What would you like?
I'll think about it.
I'll let you know.'
You know what?
'I have the answer,
To that question you asked me a few days ago.
About our upcoming annivesary.'
I thought you were ignoring me.
It was too much going on then.
Why don't you threaten me with sex,
To commensurate the unforgettable event
Fast encroaching upon us.
That should be stimulating.'
I am being serious.
'And I'm not? '
