more of the same

more of the same



humming the sacred song of the city

my blessing all strewn i come to a gate

forever beyond it lies merciful fields

goldenest pastures of brilliant birds

within velvet shallows and folds in the curtain

within glades of witch and in hazel veneer

up sidewalks of hollywood in creepy old houses

on afternoons 23 years ago

days come and go like ants

in the eyes of a camera the vision is naked

in the woods and the cliffs and the track and the fawn

in the broken down river drowning in memory

in the tumbledown hill in a million lives

in a jar with the wind whistling in it

rattle snake skin newly shed on the way

troughs of time when you slump its quite pleasant

slipping away down the tunnel ahead


you never said

    Loved this. Felt the heat and shade and the hint of something other, just behind the facade, something you might just catch a glimpse of – or was it the heat haze? Wonderful.

    The song conceived before it sang
    or sang itself before conceived
    through you we all own(ed) it
    takes us places we’ve never been
    buried in memory or clearly seen
    infuriatingly contradictory
    teasing and sating sensuality
    such real rich deep veneer
    who’s counting
    nothing was real it seemed
    or perhaps too real
    for poor fawn at cliff edge
    struggles for footing
    as rock crumbles
    but only stumbles
    disarming the devastating snake
    rediscovering sleep felt safety
    silence therein
    non martial spacial field
    town devoid of violence

    Lovely reminisce, words with such texture
    “Merciful fields and goldenest pastures”

    like the fields of elysian,

    the words always paint so many pictures, compose so many worlds to enter.

    do you ever interpret your words in sound? Or your pictures as sound ? Or your sounds as pictures and words?
    My process is a bit like that…………..

    off on a timbral tambourine riding through some distant landscape with blood red skies from the dawn long ago, back back when the dinosaurs gasped at the comets impact…….

    and thank you for your kind words…they mean more then you know… having holy days away from the book of faces

    Blessings always for an artist like no other! much love xx CM

    So lovely, I just had to put a record on (“Of Skins & Hearts”), that last line in that just reminded me of “She never said”.

    listened to the new KK album for the first time last night……
    the perfect elixer for the struggle and strife of every day life
    love always…..

    seems that some of us walk through this life and when all is done and said there is nothing left behind no sign that they were ever and some of us blaze a trail to be traced by all who follow and you you leave so much in your wake the days and years to come will still be all your words and visions and thoughts to stand behind you and they will all know of the time when the being who left us these treasures

    Hey, it’s untouched .. No one’s followed up on here! Was hoping you’d get motivated & inspired…so did it work? Am listening to YAE disc on repeat – can’t get enuff…I need more – like when the digital dL(Sp. Ed.) kinks get worked out so I could listen in its entirety-those remixes sound amazing .. Gorgeously smooth flowing tracks + musical arrangements along w/ your vocals…must be doing something rite – your voice sounds spectacular!! ‘Can’t Get Free’ is the outstanding track for me rite now – it’s all beautiful, anyway! Steve & Mutton – great combo!! Next for me-the DVD…what a treat that will be!! Sorry this is so obnoxiously long but I think I’m aloud, since we’ve bumped heads a lifetime of many moons ago, you probably won’t remember…but I do!!
    Keep up the fab work, you multi-talented, Shooting Star…yeah, u know it!! – The Fire Starter

    La-dee-da…Yaayy! Mission accomplished-a genius(to me, anyway) transferred the YAE dL onto both of my music apps.
    Yeah – I know everyone reads everything in cyberspace .. Unless the person changes, words should always be honest-no matter how good or bad one feels…or maybe that’s just the way I feel!
