Isn't it funny
by Maddi Eden
How when you're in love
Have extraordinary meaning?
For example, let me cite
The Boxing Day tsunami
On that disastrous day
I thought as much about the poor victims, as about
Whether he would call me later, or not.
When there were bombings in London
I commiserated the dead to myself
And then lamented
That he had forgotten my birthday.
How frighteningly ridiculous.
