no alcohol beyond this joint

no curtain to blow

no zephyrs to stack

i chase to the cut

what the fuck is that

kero whack

i’m had a drink

i’m a million feet tall

i’m all over town down at town hall

faster than speed faster than bridges

faster than vista faster than slower

my giddy mind of a whorl

i’m a little girl with a grudge

i’m lower case no punk dew australasian

you don’t know what i don’t know

love in gestation above a stationary moon

the womans voice outside the skin of the night

she calling Steef

Steef are you in there tonight

Steef can I have some water

this sea is too salty to drink I think I oughta go

minerva please stay i’m talking to stone here

she say i’d rather play my song on my own here

I stick on music I tear off some art

I run over a number when 12 oclock start

I feel everything too right down to the darkening

deeper than dna the visitors harkening

my dreaming

steef steef wake up i’m leafing

the starz are freezing steef

yes space is for keeping

yet here you are sleeping

we can see ourselves out

its such a long way home but we get there so quick steef

we get there like magic

we get there by stealth

steef we just disappear here and turn up somewhere else

steef I love you and

look we took something

but we gave something too

you’ll find out one day

thats the least we could do

    Hi Steve,
    way too late to comment on the Glasgow show but here goes.
    Very very special night. Perfect venue, arranged at last minute, and very vocal and receptive crowd. Great merchandise. Awards to your sound guys – absolutely perfect from 3 rows from the front. You are at your peak as a singer and as a band now. Untouchable. Your unofficial 5th member really fills out that sound, an awful lot going on, but in perfect clarity. Great song choice, everyone seemed to be having a good time, and I have got my tickets for Edinburgh.
    So – new band portrait, TV appearances, non stop concert schedule, you appear to be everywhere BUT one little niggle. You no longer tour England – you tour the UK!
    See you in Edinburgh!!
    Take care and stay healthy

    Happy Birthday to you SK!
    wordsmith and musician extraordinaire

    I enjoyed your appearance at the State last week, brief though it was,
    unlike somebody else. I really wanted to hear you sing Everybody Hurts. Anyway, you sure had some fans in the audience, besides us. Really looking forward to the church in November. I know I’ll get my money’s worth then as always.

    Celebrate your special day and I wish you all good things.

    Love Di

    Your poetry…always transcendent. Lower case indeed.

    Mine is now limericks that appear at 4 a.m., as I try not to dwell on our country being controlled by madness.

    Although it may seem quite bizarre…
    Someday I will sit on a star
    I will revel in bliss
    And blow you a kiss
    As I gaze at the earth from afar

    Carry on…

    Your Friend in Pennsylvania

    The swivel of the kangaroo on a holiday. I saw you gardening. You looked lonely like you did when your mom left you alone with your ball that day so long ago. Tears well up in a man’s heart but the gauge is tight like a vice. A man’s heart is like the lowest deck of the titanic. A blue jay can be thought of in almost 10 ways. Conspiracy is their crime.. They will pay!!! Lanterns appear from galilee. The Sanhedrin has cut the ear off of Van Gogh who was then renamed Rupert by the Vatican. I’m sorry, Saint Rupert. Galileo is now in house arrest on the moon- yes in the sea of Galileo. He too is criminalized ….for discovering the moon! And rightly so! The moon is a conspiracy. An attempt to forment insurrection against a superior authority. I leave you with the kiss of oxygen breathed 10,000 miles away.

    Bat chatter
    Black battery cable
    Nightstalker, rabble, fable
    If you’ve read this far you know it’s trouble
    Vampire wings, jellyfish stings
    Your dinner is cold on the table.

    What you read, what he hid
    What unstable minds forbid
    A bat in the hand is worth two in the stars
    Cockroach hotel, empty cars

    A dirty city garbage fire
    Liar desire entire hotwire
    Trouble is a name as well
    Knot mine
    When you lie your face is higher
    Above me than the moon.

    All that comforts us when we cry
    with a serpentine hug, a metal slide
    LCT on the neck and ears
    deaf to the heart
    of a desert girl’s slumber

    everything that we knew
    when you were me and I was you

    woke in Vegas with gold hair
    had a dream that you were there
    casino love carissimo mio
    heavy gold watch broken
    heavy numbers humbled

    Tiffany, you thought you knew her
    she’d never do this

    cold Midas kiss

    a finger stabs the eye
    everything’s a blur
    silver burns yet
    gold becomes her.
