Surreal Bucket List #3
Bruce Boston

Write in a soft voice that carries a crossbow.

A Browning ZERO 7 Model 162, bore sighted at 20 yards, 145 lb. draw weight, built-in cocking device, multi-reticule illuminated scope.

Tour Mt. Olympus in a Volkswagen Bus.

The gods and goddesses and all the magical beasts come out to greet me, fascinated and delighted by my mode of transportation.

Recline for a fortnight in shades of fancy.

Exist in dreamtide worlds of speculation and live completely in the visions of my mind.

Laugh at the incredible weight of being.

Estimated at 2.6 kilos per square inch, though considerably less on brisk cool days when a zephyr can steal the incredible heat of being from the brain.

Inhabit my ancient roots in a Cambrian sea.

Frolic and kill and devour with my aquatic forbearers.
