A dream, an apparition, a delusion.
Call it what you choose but it appeared to be her in every way.

After Wishes, walking in Fantasyland
a girl in a long white dress with a blue flower pattern
long brown hair cascading down her back
taking a picture of a saying on a leaf
a canvas bag on her shoulder.

She suddenly got absorbed into the crowd
and I didn’t see her again.
I know it couldn’t have been [her], but it was.
At least that makes for a better story, so that’s what we’ll say.
