Virtual Celebration by Carl “Papa” Palmer

She receives birthday postings and likes
from thirty three Facebook friends
from fellow Farmville farmers
tending e-crops in four foreign countries,

but nary a single greeting card
or telephone call
from either her daughter or her son,
neither her sister nor her brother,
not even flowers from her husband.
