Second round of brownies: AWESOME

Note to self:

Sometimes there is such a thing as too much chocolate.

I know, hard to believe but it's true. I went way too far with the chocolate in the first batch of peanut butter chip brownies I baked last week. But the new batch, whoa mama! It's good stuff.

I may try a different recipe when I bake some more brownies for Christmas and compare the two.

Everyone who said they would catch up with me AFTER the holidays, sorry you are just going to have to miss out on this.

When you hang with JP, you always eat well.

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
