The world is round.
If you think otherwise,
You ain’t got no kindah sense.
Your baseless skepticism does not correlate to enlightenment.
Been there and done that.
Stupid is contagious.
Stay the eff away from me.
It’s a damn shame.
It all seemed workable.
Until, it worked me over.
Constant barrage of negativity.
I swallow Lynchian Garmonbozia*
by the gallon.
Empathy is choking me.
Apathy is the new religion in our postmodern world.
Are we still postmodern?
Or, onto something even more sinister?
Sullen sunken dimly drunken.
Spinning endlessly out toward nothing, from somewhere,
That instantly appeared inexplicably out of nowhere.
Trapped in this condition.
Don’t know when my parole is coming.
It will come, though.
Lungs filling, excruciating.
If I’m buying the farm,
It has to have a wishing well.
So I can trap myself inside, in constant hope of arriving rescue,
Despite the broken bucket and rotting rope.
The chance that some magic resides in good intentions may be my only respite.
Worlds have been conquered for much less.
Conquered, for much less.

Welcome to my effort. Yes, as a great procrastinator, it requires great effort to stay focused on something productive that matters to me. I’ll find any old excuse to traipse from project to project, and I rarely end up at the place I started. I find this maddening, and exhaustive. So it is with high hopes, and a greater grasp of self-awareness, that I embark upon staying the course so to speak.
I enjoy writing. Be it blogs, fiction, poetry, etc. I love the craft and the act of creation, the art in and of itself, for it’s own sake and end. I am happy to be able to do it.

Place of residence: Somewhere in the land of metro Boston. It’s vaguely familiar and becoming home more and more by the day, but when you come from “The Town” all else fails by comparison.
Favorite Color: I’m partial to all forms of blue.
Favorite Author: c’mon! don’t expect me to answer that, there are too many.
I enjoy memories of playing 80’s Atari better than playing any advanced gaming system that exists today.
Hope to be recognized for my paper clip collection. As well as my 27 rejected applications to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailiey Clown college.
