so many in here
fighting for space
pleading their case
i am just one survivor
i am just a’jostlin’ to be heard
i am an aspect of a composite
that complex and brilliant machine
that had come to be known by the symbols “sk”
on this plane
on this particular plane only
didja think it was the only one
you see tomorrow nite will be played out
in a million newt towns
in a million conjuctions
in a million combinations
all those songs
all slightly different to the ones next door
the upgraded moment
almost was you
yonder the milky weigh
stephen kilby did you write these songs
aye m’lud
were you aware of the similarity between these songs
and the claimants work?
specifically
mr stefan killbees
under the milk and whey
mr s kilbouys
urdu, the milks on its way
and( an unlikely one, this)
mr steven kilbeys
under the wilky may

my honour
i rest my case…….

i can just do anything here

ha
ha
leave great spaces of blanks….

or anything
i can say anything i like
so having that great freedom
IS
paradoxically crippling me
i know what you want to hear
I AM UNABLE TO SAY IT
i know what you want to see
I AM UNABLE TO SHOW YOU
i know you want an end to the gratuitous swearing
SHUT THE FUCK UP
please sk (if it is you)
how will the newt town be
will ya wear ya white clothes as usual?
what does it mean, the white……?
what songs will you do…..anything new…or the same old bunch?
will you be trying any dazzling new dance steppes in your “unbassed” sequences
will you be inviting select fans up to sing maudlin renditions of your most
famous hits
will you be dematerializing the baby elephant from metropolis vid
and making hundred dollar notes rain down??
c’mon sk tell us everything….
a slight pause
hit the refresh button
take a glass of vino
make a fuckin fire, mon
sk is about to talk
sk is about to tell all
will the real sk please stand up…
ok ok thats him
i recognise him, its ok
sk?
SK?
oh…..SK!!!!

    Ahh, SK, good to have ya back.

    Making the vapid pop(slop)culture world we live in a little more bearable. Shut the blinds, turn off the lights, plug in the choich like some secret, shameful rite to keep the concrete and cardboard walls from closing in on little ole me… Gotta get me a catacomb, this musty closet just lacks dig-nitty…and the incense is smothering (muthering?)…

    don’t dematerialize just yet, man, there’s too much to do…

    (btw, I for one like the gratuitous fucking profanity)

    Jeeezus, You are one absorbed s.o.b.

    I have to admit it is(was?) a good read.

    all these miles away it would be fun to jam in the most “Mickey Finn” sense of the word.
    Stick some Maracas in ‘yer hands
    to do a rousing rendition of “Pretty Ugly Pretty Sad” For the Sinatra fans of course.

    For me though, it would have to be
    “Fall in Love” or “Anyway”…
    “One Lucky Break…Cocaine Cake.”
    (I.E. CHAM-PAGNEE for the p.c.of us)

    Don’t know why that stays with me,
    maybe the Milkay H-whay thing.
    Grasping the (w)ring and falling short (for good godamn reason!)

    ‘yer doing a service, don’t ya’ see that?

    On the fringe we be, but true is thee.

    My P-bass has been remarked upon to exude the “aura de la Yeblik.”

    This makes me smile.
    Violet town indeed.

    glynnisjohns, Yeah i’m inebriated.

    Excitement, are we up to here sk. Laughs!
    Good wishes to you and that is for real!

    It is a curious thing in life when you find out things don’t work the way we’ve been taught. All these things we forget from the past lives we’ve led.

    Rest assured kilbey i know exactly what it’s like. To stare into the world and know there is more happening than meets the eye. To look into someone’s face and wonder/remember who they were. To hear the voice of a good angel(one’s that don’t have anything to do with god and religion)say it’s all not what it seems.

    There is hope though. Not everyone is evil.
    Reincarnation. I know it’s real. I remember.

    Your efforts are appreciated in multitudes!

    oh dear,
    the samples we received back from the lab this morning were positive
    i regret, that i have to tell you sk
    in as many possible words
    without actually naming your condition
    that the prognosis for this kind of thing is not good
    i’m afraid there’s no known cure

    however don’t be alarmed, that’s where the bad news ends
    there have been many documented cases of this very condition
    where the patients went on to live perfectly normal productive lives
    and just a couple over stated cases where all hell broke loose
    but less not dwell on them shall we, things have changed
    and research into all manner of existential problems is ongoing
    despite the current political climate
    (it’s a passion for most clinicians still working in this field)

    now, what to do about your condition
    and this is the good part sk,
    nothing!
    that’s right, absolutely nothing at all!
    just keep doing all the things you’ve been doing
    you see, all our research points to the location of this blockage,
    this “cosmic constipation” shall we call it,
    as one that surrounds the infected individuals words
    but not one that is necessarily caused by the individuals words
    strange I know,
    we in the field call it the law of paradoxical linguistic inversions,
    which states that any such communications of a ? nature
    suddenly mean anything to anyone once spoken
    sad really, but you needn’t worry
    just relax, there are no hidden expectations in this diagnosis
    your tests show that you have very health levels of compassion in your blood
    which has been found to mitigate and FORGIVE some of the more frustrating symptoms

    ok, ok i will shut the fuck up now and let you get back to work
    i can see you’ve had enough of this pseudo medical mumbo jumbo for one blog
    sorry

    Mr. SK

    All of it. Thank you for taking me out of my head just for a few moments. A breath of fresh air after cleaning out the storage space of memories and mementos of failed relationships, primary school assignments marked “interesting”, and clothes from the 80’s. It’s not so hot here in this desert called Tucson, but that’s our reprieve from summer. Thank you for your transmissions. It’s been inspiring in a number of ways.

    Jennifer
