Memory wonders (poem)

Bones are carved, fat is stacked and people lean on what is there to support them

Keeper of the backbeat

Sometimes it feels there are only the surroundings that form

nothing sticks yet nothing passes, nothing to touch which is known to be my own

no sincere smiles meant to enliven

bones are carved, fat is stacked and people lean on what is there to support them

the blood runs circuitous and forgetful of it’s force and import

the brain strolls and scrambles, scratches at murmurs of past facts and future functions

there is little use to what’s been done and more often than not none of the millions of actions enacted serve more than a revolving process

Retreat in expression, for there are no receivers in sight

Memory wonders if it’s ever seen that which it wishes were whole the world over

Recipe: Chipotle Aioli, Habanero Ghost Pepper Jack, Pesto, Red Quinoa & Turkey

47DF2D5C-4F2E-4B78-8A99-52772E849269I had a big batch of red quinoa. I made it earlier today to have in an asian greens salad with blueberries, habenero ghost pepper jack and lemon ginger seseme dressing.

So for dinner I whipped out the quinoa and shredded the habenaro jack into it, followed by generous dollops of pesto, 3 torn up turkey slices and some chipotle aioli. I mixed it up w/ a fork and thought I was going to heat it, but ended up loving it at temp. Though I think it might be good with the cheese melted in by heating.

Quick meal or side and yummy. Slide scale of proportions as you like for taste and consistency.

Pinprick (Poem)

If life were like a map laid out before me

i would still pick the stars to press my pinpoint into

and watch it unravel the fabric,

more brillant with every indention

evidence of my absolute intentions

and my penchant to aim straight for perfection

One pinpoint can hold my map up on the wall

why do so many take it out and watch it fall?
