I need to air some thoughts out

I think I will pack myself into the L'il Shizzle the week after next and take a long drive. I really need to get away for a while and sort out some stuff.

I might borrow a laptop and describe my journey from the road. Maybe snap photos and leave a visual chronicle.

If I can't fix everything I have broken, then I will work on the things that I can. That's gotta be worth something.

There is a laptop my folks have that rarely gets used that I will likely grab, but thanks. It will be interesting to see where I end cuzI swear I don't even know where HERE is these days.

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
