"Love-at-first-click?"     [Pantoum]

Love-at-first-click? sweet!
we're in the 21st century

zeitgeist & joiedevivre meet
& the rest is cyberhistory

we're in the 21st century

Y Messenger's the corner mart
& the rest is cyberhistory

says the message of the heart

Y Messenger's the corner mart
wherein soulmates may chance to meet

says the message of the heart
love-at-first-click? sweet!



[I've not personally been using Yahoo Messenger; rather, this poem riffs on Alankrita's An im love story]

But, you know what, it happens! Two of my closest online friends met in a chatroom and they have been in a 'relationship' for over three years now.

True indeed. If there's a hint of satire in my verses, this doesn't obviate the social reality at all. In fact I know a married couple who first met online in the early 1990s. ;-) -- before chat rooms were invented. I think she was looking for technical assistance. I imagine soon enough, this phenomenon will be making its way more fully into novels (and eventually films).
