Once while supine back down in an overgrown field of tall grass I came awake quiet and still to see a deer standing over me front hooves straddling my face. I suppressed the panic but then the Tom turkey strutted past and gobble-shook both the deer and I. That cat danced perfectly past my head and leaped its hind legs over my now-quivering torso and legs. It was at an old borrow pit – surface mining sand for development in the East-Orlando area called Greater Metropolitan Downtown Bithlo – to my knowledge the only municipality (mostly of trailer parks and brothel-bars and one recreated stockade-of-sharpened=logs Second Seminole Indian Wars fort called “Fort Christmas” which rerains a stopoff along State Road 50 leading for DisneyO-do to backdoor to Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach where I dream of Jeanne rubbed her lamp under Astronautical hands – ever to turn in its State-issued Charter as a city…soon thereafter the laws were rewritten until Lake Mary found itself illegally trying to become a Seminole County City – and with luminaries’ and donors and WigBigs’ help turned the trick and now is a head-rest for the rich and famous and the people who worship them.
