it’s a grown up summer camp, three whole weeks. to get there we take a boat through a cave. we arrive, it’s late afternoon, i look at the sun in the sky & think how slowly time is passing. i can’t do three weeks, but i’m not supposed to leave. we go on fitness hikes, i’m always looking for a way to escape without having to take a boat through the cave at night. i found a flashlight but i think the batteries won’t last the hour or more it’ll take me to navigate the cave using one of those pole thingys like they use in the canals of venice. i imagine it going entirely dark, and then the bats will come.
