Social Distancing

Milo Zhu is a grade 12 art student who writes and creates digital art.


I suppose with social distancing happening, a dream involving everyone at a party setting was bound to happen. It was almost like a flashback to a park party I went to last year, except it was a strange ravine with a parking lot. So many people were there, I could tell, but I couldn’t directly look at anyone’s face. It was a surreal blur. Someone offered me to vape, which I wouldn’t do in real life. Smoke just kept coming out of my mouth. I got in a car at one point, then I crashed it and I didn’t know how to “turn it off” as there were only buttons. Despite the chaos, I felt calm in this dream, maybe almost happy. I hadn’t been with friends or to a party in so long. I sort of missed the chaos. I was disappointed when I woke up to find that it was just a dream.
