• About me

    My name is Rob Skidmore and my wife is Corryn.

    In December I graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in English and joined the ranks of the unemployed.

    I enjoy writing, you can find some of my stories and poems on this blog.

    I also ran track for BYU. I was in great shape until my appendectomy over the summer. Now I am just a skinny white guy with great form and decent muscle tone who gets winded jogging from my front door to the mailbox.

    I am going to be a first time daddy in May. It's a boy. We have a name. We aren't telling.

    I like reading; mostly short stories, they fit my attention span.

    If you like my perspective on stuff feel free to follow this blog, join me on Twitter, or add me on Facebook.

    I work for Infogenix as a SEO Content Writer. If you are interested add me on LinkedIn. I have mad writing skills.

The Map

The map I have followed
since our first meeting
in the delivery room
is older now

Creases and lines
point the way down trails
where I may never go

Each course correction
has softened
the paper aged
folded and folding again
leaving its impression
like the brown of my hair
a love of western novels

I have wrapped myself
in the sweet dry smell
of its security

It is familiar now
the map and its layers
like a wax paper drawing
each sheet
slowly revealing
the complete image
