back burners

Back burners are funny.

They're usually simmering the tastiest parts,

and usually left burning far too long,

scorching to an unrecognizable crisp

what could and should have been

a masterpiece.

But we stack up more and more layers

on our own back burners,

dropping incongruous ingredients into

inedible garish concoctions,

seasoned with a touch of despair

and paired with a dash of resignation.

What good can come from putting anything on the back burner?

Although I am no longer actively blogging, I am currently working on developing my career as an orchestral/cinematic composer under the stage name Between the Rains. You can find all my work at SoundCloud or a few selections on YouTube.

If you produce any form of media, I also write very affordable stock music for Pond5. (Use this referral link to view my profile and get 20% off your first purchase of ANY stock songs, photos, or videos from Pond5 - whether or not you buy my work!)

Also, if you need custom music produced for film or video games, head on over to the Contact page and let me know!
