glittering out there

now is elusive

then is gone

sometimes the sand contains footprints

although no one has walked upon it

my moon in its absence a vivid crescent scar

the suburbs around the asylum are strangely jungle like

we never seem to arrive anywhere much

although we travel so intently

i have lived in every house on this street

as each new life dawns i move one door closer to morning

yes i move out of night where things are uncertain

i leave a beast in me behind in darkness

i leave breadcrumbs to find my way back

poets lost in naive forests

the pastel trees the gouache fruits turned hard

the acrylic sun with its metallic gold rays

i pick up my gigantic heavy axe

from overhead music is transmitted down down

signal is apprehended

its imagistic messages are stored in my cortex

the middleman has gone

the portal is open

i begin the ascent of my everest


i’m sitting here in the luxuriant dark

smelling like a mediterranean fig

telling you the same old jig


some hope that you can dig

    Very cool, had a nice rhythm…

    Iv very sick in bed cuz of the aftermath of the
    Injections, I really really do not feel well…
    The nights are the worse, they r so lonely
    by myself. The only ones who have
    stayed to join this living hell are:
    Pain and Insomnia…
    I’m so tired of feeling this awful…
    Can life please surprise me….
    And may I please have a day
    filled with less and less of pain..
    But with mores smile…
    And some happiness….
    I running out of patience…
    I’m just looking for some-
    peace !!!

    Love this one.

    That is a very nice view Killer…Up In the Trees my friend, did our ancestors climb down from these very tress, swim out of the oceans, unearthed under a rock, or crash here because someone forgot to put batteries in his GPS (intergallactically) []

    A better world one person @ a time(being^bandit).

    two thousand sixty-five
    we thought this place was abandoned
    the vintage playground equipment turns
    we sense alien visitors by the merry go round
    as they conduct specific metallurgic scans
    there seems to be some activity among them
    we hear their soft laughter by the swings
    an unknown disc floats in the strong wind
    it becomes illuminated and spins quickly
    echoes of music and voice permeate the air
    “are you good or evil or just right or wrong?”
    the light dissipates, but we remember the song
    we retrieve the disc to add to our collection

    After checking the temps and current weather around the globe, it shook me to see that our beloved brothers and sisters, especialy Mr. Kilbey + his family/friends are in the midst of some severely hot weather …well into the 100’s and for quite some time, very dangerous for all especially the young and elderly , Australia was just finally adjusting to all her seasonal challenges when another severity presents itself. They are a couuntry! a continent of strong willed souls of men and women alike. Bless all of you and recieve the strength to weather the upcoming days and days.

    Yes definately some hope we can dig!!! Most enjoyable, (the view looks great too). How is the new place? Thank you for sharing the video and the girls look beautiful (I have a niece Scarlett who’s 6).

    Absolutely love “Life somewhere else” been playing it non stop. Every track is stunning but I especially love “Belle in Mid Air” I dig the line “You were the Hostess with the Most…”

      “Belle” is a favorite of mine, too, Ingrid. As you say, though, the whole of “Life” is incredible.

    Everyone needs a laugh so-

    A doctor walks into a bank to quickly endorse a check he just won playing golf and he managed to talk not one but two smoking hot waitresses , that are a little older than his daughters, back to his hotel room to play qvgake of hide the sausage. After reaching into his cost pocket, he realized that he was trying to write with a rectal thermometer he had extra in his pocket. Growing impatient , one of the hotties wandered up to the doc qnd asked what was wrong. He quickly replied- ” well I’m pissed off my little pumpkin , daddy here has no working pen, makes me wonder which asswhole has my pen”? It must be Richard Cranium who picked it up out of my office, he can be such a Dick head, he thought to himself.

    the day *[~]*

    HI Steve,

    That was s super cool riff. I have a random and rather odd question, but I couldn’t help but wonder, have you ever tried Ayahuasca? I was just curious. 🙂 Thank you for being awesome.
