slow dazzle

slow dazzle

i heard a voice like a snake

i saw a face like a swan

i move in diagonal space

you can’t see when I’m gone

i treat my self to a beer

i treat myself to a meal

i eat that romany soup

i seat myself by your heel

i call you up in a fog

i tear you up like a dog

in my machine you are cog

in my house by the sea

and then the oranges peel

and then the strippers show up

and then the guy with the deal

we must put up with this wheel

and as i reach into space

and as i launch my next word

the lever leave her in place

receiver is never heard

      Iheard from a source inbrisbane that he had oneof the guys from powderfinger doing some gigs with him. Not sure how true that is but not an issue for me either.

    existance is a vanishing point
    life a cherished realm
    to be something your not is better
    than not being able to tell
    you voice bellows beneath the covers
    for a love gone wrong again
    below the windy shutters
    inside the personal spell
    confer to shrines of wisdom
    that evaporate once seen
    he leaves upon the condors wing
    for its late and he must sing

      Can’t say that I necessarily agree with your poetic philosophy. But it was a pleasant read.

    Would give my blue sky eye tooth
    two know
    but a wee hit and mIss
    – a wee-er version of we?
    depends on accessibility of glasses
    and lumpenness of digits
    otherwise she
    can’t even do her pretty face
    but oh bloody life goes on blah
    (winks at self in rear vision mirror)
    and wonders if you/I
    belong to the nos
    or if the no’s belong to the pronoun
    and how many numbers of no.s?
    Yes she did. and she pondered
    if she should say
    ‘Do you mean to bug me?’
    Sorry for the Bozo quote.

    OK Steve or Sam,

    I’m excited about the new SK Strings Attached CD plus the KK Commissioned songs…just a couple questions, will you be coming out with anything else because last time I ordered something else came out and I had to pay extra shipping from AU to US. No biggie but just wondering for now. Want to order BOTH ASAP! Let me know and Big Cheers! Also, do we get digital download on The Time Being or just on Bandcamp site? Just asking, thanks!
