Portrait of Heaven
Mark Alan Stamaty

"In my Heaven I am the first-string left fielder for the Eternal Brooklyn Dodgers. We play our home games at Ebbets-Field-in-the-Sky. Here, I'm slugging a home run. After the game I'll fly to the house I grew up in. It's in a field of flowers and female nudists. There I'll meet Roy Rogers and Gene Autry and the three of us will ride the prairie until sunset, rounding up our fictitious desperadoes."
