Walk around in sweatshirts that fit your boyfriend
Arriving for a lecture, your classmates must question
If you’d been down with dengue, or better yet,
Who the hell is that person?
Sing passionately while you walk down the streets
Stare back at those who look at you
Don’t post on social media, but stalk
All those who splash their lives onscreen.
Haunt places no one goes to, gaze lovingly
At the dull glow of your laptop.
Earphones must be plugged on at all times.
Avoid eye contact. Widen your eyes.
Get semi naked at home and groove
To songs by artists who’ve committed suicide.
Write a bit of sorry poetry –
Sleep with a sinister smile plastered on.
