2021: Hour Fourteen – Imaginary Friends

Where do all the imaginary friends go
when the real children grow up

Do they gather together in a bus depot
waiting for the next batch of companions

Do they hang around playgrounds, outside of schools
waiting for the ones who walk home alone
to keep them company

what happens to the imaginary friends when they stop
getting invitations to tea parties

what happens to the imaginary friends when the children stop
calling their names 

do they find each other and keep each other company
while they wait for the next generation

  1. Truly touching…I had never thought about the fate of the retired imaginary friends. I could see the pictures you were painting. Thank you for sharing this.
