and once again, from the top

“…I too with my soul and body,
We, a curious trio, picking, wandering on our way,
Through these shores amid the shadows, with the apparitions
Pioneers! O pioneers!”

It staggers the mind. I’m doing another one of these things. But I spend so much time on WordPress-y sites and comment face-anonymously so much I might as well unveil the man of mystery, right? So here we go again: because writing unpretentiously and forthrightly has long been a strong suit of mine.

The Author Makes a Grand Appearance
What may be of interest to you: currently making a tough slog through David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest. This may occupy some of my forthcoming post-ivity. Or all, if it’s as infinite as the title suggests.

More content of potential interest: you’re reading the digression of an amateur poet. Some of that material may also precipitate from solution.

That’s probably the sum of it. Hack poetry and stream-of-consciousness-what-I’m-doing-now blabber hardly fit for Twitter. Also, don’t be shocked if cute animals make a semi-weekly appearance.

Anteaters. They keep it lively.

Just kidding. The author doubts you’ll ever see this initial post but, if you do, stick along for the ride, and enjoy. For as long as it lasts.
