Facebook Lovers

Two friends on Facebook who had never met
Were walking toward each other down the street.
“Ten thousand miles away he is, so far.”
“Ten thousand miles away she is, so far.”
“He thinks I live down under, on the coast.”
“She thinks I live in Scotland, on a coast.”
“I used to; now I’m in this cowboy town.”
“I used too; now I’m in this cattle town.”
A coffee-shop and bookstore stood as one.
He held the door; she smiled like the sun.
They sat at separate tables, tablets read,
And wondered at the things the other said.
“He held the door; was really so polite.”
“The way she smiled put out the stars of night.”
A gasp is how this story comes to close,
And scrape of chairs, as Facebook lovers rose.
