I took a day trip to the Magic Kingdom to meet a friend who I haven't seen in four years. It was a fun time, we got to really talk, joke around, update each other on what we've each been doing. I felt bad that I had to leave later on, I'm hoping I captured it with this little writing.

12/28/2013 (Saturday)- Fluorescent Reality
I drove to meet a friend at an old childhood place
leaving reality behind just for a bit.
we sat, ate, talked
met his wife, parents, brother
…what have you been up to?
I’m not sure where I’m going,
what I’ve been doing.
I’m a writer now, I confessed as if I’ve been hiding it like a sin.
and then they smile.
I took the ferry back to reality
yellow and pink fireworks reflected
on a man-made lake
paid by fiction-and-fairies
I took the ferry back
to the cold sterile fluorescent light of reality.
