You can swan dive or belly flop but be real. Cinderella not Barbie here.
No pretend humour. No more plastic food in unnatural lighting with air kissing non friends.
Get real. Real friends, real times, real food that you can pronounce the ingredients of.
Show up, be present, listen. Laugh, cry, console, support, be there.
Don’t guess the ending, cut off, shortcut, downsize the situation. Sit with it.
Fake has expired, simulate now more. This is not a dress rehearsal, get out of the wings, stand centre stage with or without an audience and be real.
Just a minute now…
