anglo-saxon archetype

our four fathers further off

some brilliant ancestor with limed twigs

the history of world upon world

some other man now breaks through out of me

leaving his memories behind in this mind

a shattered mirror of impressions

a dark secret controlling almost everything

a schema for encoding response

a mistrust of measurement

a void of marine desert

a ceremony inverted in on itself meaning an opposite

my fingers curl round black nails

my wolf teeth my sloth claws

my hide beaten from silvered skin

man hunts man in the red dawn of prehistories inconclusive spats

names change meanings fade

the gods in all their forms and equivalents

and  demons set free by the ruthless twin pursuits of  buy and sell

we are shoeless in one eden

we are refused service in the next

our allusions are detached

our delusions are attached

tomorrow : more except not as good

    Steve, Van Halen have confirmed 5 dates in Australia. You cannot miss it. They´re mixing the new album with Dave Lee Roth. Take the human bunny with you, she´ll love it for sure! With time, she will to play “Eruption”, tapping up and down the fretboard, no speed limits!

    this is exactly why a heart is the key to a soul…

    thy will be done… so (then) the rest is impossible to ever be written wrong; whatever dialect’s illusion still stands forever at peace unearthed through the heart’s song. (and very pretty melting colors up above in the sky with the help of a warm light — from here it looks like the sun.) spoken all over the world: “run along, go out and play now, but be sure to be home before dark.”

    I beg to differ. I am alive and blessed with a wife and 2 children who love and adore me. I dwell in the darkness like maybe no one you ever known. I live in a prison of bodily pain that engulfs my every breath, every blink, every thought. But I am more powerful than what has become of my physical form. I elevate above the anguish to hear laughter of my 3 year old angel, I sit and listen to the woes of a twenty year old son who has yet to experience life. Fuck- when I was 16 I played in a hardcore punk band that would melt the paint off the walls, I played hard and partied harder but I evolved. Yeah, the darkness is always with me. Its the shadow we all emits while basking in the glow of light. I can’t give up or in now, there is to much at stake. Whatever troubles and turmoils that surround you my far away friend, you’d defeated them all in the past and you stand before us all, not in judgement …but in awe. In awe that so many have stayed by your side, in awe that whatever u sing-song, write or relate…keeps us at attention. Yes, your only a man of blood, sweat, and bone. But you, your existence, is treasured by the choir that is near and far. I wish for happiness to light your life, your eyes, I just wish- as many of us probably do, for you to be whole again. Not just parts and pieces placed on display.

      I am crossing no boundaries, barriers, or walls. Iv known for many years that what you write does not always represent what you project. But I feel sadness, I have felt it for some time now. Your personal life is what exactly the word describes…personal. I can only hope and pray for your health, the health of all 5 angels that glow in your life. Grab them – hold them tight. They r yours. Your greatest creations. . And if.i

    Sorry- didn’t finish my last sentence…
    If forces are aligned against you, seek help from those that are the closest to achieve what is needed. Your angels at your side !!!!!

      With a large break in the center of guitar fathomy delight. Ending off with drawn silence minus the pulsing sound of nothing.

    the gods in all their forms and equivalents
    and demons set free by the ruthless twin pursuits of buy and sell

    los dioses en todas sus formas y equivalentes
    y demonios liberados por la despiada búsqueda de la compra y venta

    An alliterative long line! Somewhere your AS forefathers are cracking a smile–then returning to their customary scowls. 🙂

    Thanks Sara…I really needed one and that was very sweet. Only grand blessings are on their destinations place in your life. Something is or will be in your presence for a life time for you to treasure. Thanks again.
