imaginary friends

on the plus side
(which is very small),
being suddenly unattached
has the benefit
of allowing me to create
many imaginary friends --
all of them to my liking,
doing what I want,
when I want it,
and repeating it as much as
I care for them to do so --
if I want them,
I just conjure them up;
and if I grow tired of them,
or if they seem too old,
or too far away,
I can dismiss them
just by thinking of something else;
it's almost like being young again,
and having control of my whole world,
back when I was
the only important person in it;

come to think of it,
this isn't that imaginary at all.
