{in our bedroom after the war}

color war broke by way of fire-eaters. 
there were battles of strength, speed, and who can make the most appetizing dish using canned corn as the main ingredient. 
there was the rope burn and semi-silent meals,
apache relay and a successful sing.
in the end the other guys won. 
and then it was the second to last day of camp.
and then the last.
so now i sit in my air-conditioned room in my tiny apartment in manhattan, 
with a belly full of bluebees. 
...and i'm itching to know:
were the past two months for real?
