310: Part II


Inside a white wall and wooden story
He feels a funeral in his brain
Quietly reciting an unsung story
Queer euphoria rushing in his vein

He finds it dainty, simple, topical
Yet, he digs her special dish
Like seeking an answer to an oracle
In every chew, the poet sends his wish

Her kind smile every time he’s awake
Cries and giggles in their countless hue
Wise advice in the midst of earthquake
Also, a merry future in one plate for two

One day, before her special day
He feels a funeral in his brain
Praying his uncertainty drifts away
And only tomorrow will remain
