Harry’s Last Curry

by Nora Jay

“Restaurant responds after woman spots dead husband in new promo footage…
Lucy Watson was certain she saw [her late husband in the video, eating at the Indian restaurant.]  …
‘The moment I saw the thing I thought, ‘Oh my God—that’s Harry’. …
He’d be eating a chicken korma because that’s all he ever ate.’”
LAD Bible

“I know that man—I was his wife!
It’s Harry—lately ‘late’”
Cried Mrs. Lucy Watson, sparking drama;
So can this be his afterlife?
Is “all he ever ate”
His lot henceforth—a ghostly chicken karma?
