warm glow increases fractious display

i the telegraphic son of whom it is said : nothing

in sides the war-locked city spire

worked with water  lathed by puma clawed antelope wing

i am bounced between juxtaposed states

strange envelopes something hopes me to enter

off centre the squares line up against my stars

i perish in some menagerie gored by memphis horns

the wildnesses where i must interpret small hints

printed in elvish the passports of leaves

sometimes the great artist forgets a stray flourish

sometimes a spider may release a fly

sometimes the king can sing of these things

often the earth often the sky

but sometimes the lonely eye

then summon the women bearing the liquors

and bring on the girls all fruitful and kind

and send up a litre of yer finest nepenthe

perhaps i need to get right out of this mined

    That was exquisite ….subtle and described if a floating observer was whispering all the right things in your ears. Nice pic too. You seem relaxed, man we all.can use some relaxation (fuckn sleep on my part…still.escapes me). I hope all is improving in the backwash of ur life. You really could use some peace right about now.

    Roads getting heavier
    I lift my eyes if only to see
    The storm is coming again
    clouds churning and turning
    powered with electricity.

    I said I need someone to grow
    but all that any1 has offered was
    a pile of broken souls.

    In this hour of forgiveness
    comes a man crawling upon his knees
    someone sang this would all be so endless
    from where I stand I can only ask

      I recently emailed some pix of Chicago.seen thru the eyes of a 20 yearold ( my Alex) to Mr Lee and he commented how it was fresh to.see images that were not ur typical photographs. I was wondering if u would like to take a second out of ur busy day/night/always…to take a look. I would send them to ur other email address. Just wondering ——

      Hi Darrin,
      I know you have major health issues,and when I read this post today and you mentioned lack of sleep I thought this could be helpful for you.
      Not sure if you’ve ever tried a Floatation Tank to relieve your pain and ills?It feels very refreshing afterwards.Very much like they say,a 1 hour float equals 4 hours sleep.At the time of your float it’s like lying on a cloud.Great when you need to lessen gravity’s pull on your poor old bod.Plus great results on the old grey matter too.
      Hope it helps!

        Thank you so much for ur compassion. I have read about the system you mentioned and it has intrigued me. I have tried EVERYTHING that is available to me and have dumbfounded sleep study experts. They have come to the realization that when the pain level changes in my body during sleep, that unfortunately, my synapses goes into overdrive- almost a fight/ flight reaction. So huge amounts of endorphines are released and my brain becomes fully awake and aware, though my body is rigid with stiffness and extreme pain. On top of the fact that I fell her in Chicago yesterday at 1130am going to get my little angel from school. My lower back and left elbow/arm took the punishment. I am stuck in bed cuz I can barely walk and since I am on 1100 mg of Naproxen, onto, of all the other drugs I take, my arm looks like a fucking rainbow from a demented movie. This, I know is caused by the blood- thinner side effects of almost all NSAIDS.

        I am going to look into the flotation system u mentioned, and if its anything like the one used in the incredible classic movie – ‘Altered States’ than I am all in. Iv got some primal stuff lurking feel
        p inside, may it would cone to the surface like in the movie- wouldn’t that b a ….trip.

        Thanks again – very much,
        Darrin JK

    mmm…yeah, here’s what you should do. Go to the market and procure the following: a bottle of good wine (being in Australia, this should be easy and affordable) (only one bottle, no need to get crazy); fresh fennel bulbs, canned artichoke hearts, and some chickpeas. Roast up the veggies with veg stock, white wine, and garlic. Uncork said wine and sip slowly. Enjoy a nice dinner over brown rice or whole grain pasta. Don’t listen to music. Don’t pick up an instrument. Don’t write. Don’t paint.


    Be Steve.

    Allow it.

    Betcha it feels pretty good.

    perhaps those fairies were real after all
    delicate in nature, beautiful and small
    not just one man’s fantasy, but overall…
    one dream of humankind, to stand or fall
    with the hopes of those who heed the call
    to see six fingers, not just three or four

    Fractiousness may be fiction but prickly heat is in fact friction. Fractions are facts I can’t hack.
