by the time

by the time you reach seventy,
lord willin’ you do, you will
have flown through the strato-
sphere, been on a journey with
jules verne including to the
center of the earth (which
may sound like fun from your
young perspective, but it is
very dark down there), been
twenty thousand leagues under
the sea (where it is also
very dark). if you are lucky,
you will have resurfaced,
breathed deeply, and then
journeyed around the world
in eighty days, taken a nice
long, hot shower, petted and
been kissed by a chocolate lab.
