I’m trying to recall the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen:
Pacific ocean: sharks.
Atlantic ocean: more sharks.
Rocky mountains: snow, bears, death.
Aerial view from 10,000 feet: i can’t make any of those objects out, plus plummeting death drop.
Yellowstone: snow, bears, wolves, bison, volcano, death.
Grand Tetons: snow, bears, death.
Grand Canyon: death drop.
Costa Rican rain forest: wet shoes; death from pneumonia.
It occurs to me that the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen is
the bottom of the bottle,
and then death.
