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 a selection of my music as well as my contact info for custom requests on my demo reel.
