We all have to start somewhere...

While this is not my first blog, it does mark my attempt at a more focused goal. Ironically, Daily TMI was born from my unfocused nature.

I needed a way to cope with my obsessive-compulsive need for information. Rather than continue staring into space contemplating every mote of dust I come across, it is time to put my life's knowledge to use.

This will not always be pretty . . . but it will be honest. Perhaps the right and wrong choices I have made will be worthwhile to others. Or you just may sit back and laugh your face red with me.

So welcome to the inner gears of brain! There are some rusty parts that need to be replaced but it's still running in halfway decent shape.

Flame and Bone

When I was made from fire
Poured into the tender vessel of caution
That keeps my smoke from rising
Quickly did I discover that apart from crisp drizzles or falling snow
The world chilled my touched
Walking the narrow cornered gap between girders and cut stone
One learns to tuck his shoulders in or risk
Jostling a neighbor passing by rapt with want
For a clear path without the distraction
Of another man's boiling eyes
The tip of a finger
That oldest of all weapons
Grown deadlier and pristine in its invention
Gathers a mote of a cinder on its bare flesh
And turns pondering how best to scratch the impious itch
Prying open the tender seam
Where the oil of thought dews
Offering a new wick to ignite
Squirming alive as a salamander of mischief
That yearns for a taste of air it is so ready to devour
The steam of breath betrays me
Before the glint of orange spreads
In popping bright waves
Eroding the fibers feeding it
Leaving naught but ash
As my shell of quietude falls away
