Is What It Is | Sto’tryp #16

Boardtrip II
Can, Na, and Bis, You Bitch!

Listen, I don’t want to put words in your mouth, right, so you don’t say a god-damn thing. Me, on the other hand…

“So… you see that omnipotent deity?” I ask. “Did you see what he looked like?!”

Again, not a damn thing. I’m not tryna put words in your mouth, so I’ll just say it:

“The Bookmaker looked exactly like me!”

You disagree wholeheartedly, but that is what it is.

‘Man, it’s nice out this evening.

‘Man, that joint was real strong.

‘Man, there’s enough cannabis left for a whole second joint at The Eagle’s Nest.

‘Man, it’s nice out this evening.

I arrive unto the spot where I crash-landed upon this mountain, this identical Board Mountain which has pull’ me from the original. It makes me wonder, it does, how many others there may be. How many Board Mountains, how many Wuesters of New Jersey, how many Tungstok “Rattlesnake” Thomosons bryngin’ however many yous along for a walk to the summit of Board Mountain. How many mountains there must be, how many peaks, each no higher, no lower than the rest, all the same, all exactly the same.

Its all exactly the same.

Over and over and over and over it’s all exactly the same.

Board Mountain, all Board Mountain.

The entire Universe is Board Mountain.

“By The Bookmaker,” I say aloud so you might hear me and grow despicably worried, “do you know what this means?!”

You haven’t the foggiest.

“The entire Universe is Board Mountain!”

You walk off down the mountain. I do not blame you. I also start after you, wondering privately if the way back down will be exactly the same as the way up.
