same old same old

same old same old

black cats in the night dont see me

this invisibility keeps me liquid

quaking emperor your scene is over

the warmest days of october

the thousands i saw in the mirror

i shalala down the street of streets on a festive night

the doors are flung open and interiors emit a greenish light

the songs are sung again and young again alright

the chains my brilliant brain stupidly forged from pain

the ropes were hopes billowed on bluest skies a reprisal

oh vibrating night quite inevitable really you should come around

the ground rush up to greet thee as you meet me with your sound

in earlier lives in outrageous close i had my little dance upon the toes

one lent morning i was bent bourn and horned upon yonder lawn

the swagger equivalent to the dagger i stagger to wield in the war fields

under the stern thrum of the drums we marched parched by a mirage

my companions and i plied with powder and keg we beg for more from the floor

embracing your 3 faces with a taste of some unguent gum some imposter bossed me around

i enliven my strings the very things upon which

i siren my shots and my slings abound

a tremulous caramel kiss is it

for me to visit an artificial bliss not much different from this

words rushing me crushing me crashing me into my own walls

it takes balls to admit the water in your throat

soon you will no doubt be floating on air

my desolate trespass upon magical realm at the helm of my disaster

faster and faster we spun the funny void of andromeda one

i’m down the back in the black inky seaside shack

by the glorious ocean where the merman bathe bravely on the reef

toothless fish in the lagoon soon a fine raining mist persisting and sprinkles

i am then among the winkles in the shrinking light

in the bright moon ray or hidden from sight

i bend to the pool whirling and churning and turning with life

i send out my thoughts the things our sweet victories have taught us

i caught us a beam whose silver will seem to solve everything

and dissolve you to white

    Your expression in this picture reminds me of the end of the constant in opal video. “Always somethin there to remind me”. Much love to all including most brilliant poets surnamed Kilbey and everyone else in the world I bought my nephews Kirby’s Dreamland for Nintendo. If only it was Kilbeys Dreamland?! Hmm… Jeje

    My bass sits lonely in the cupboard. Lost the muse. The bogan band i tried out with couldnt see the music for the trees. The concept of playing in time was an anathema. This town has a dead music heart. Must depart and better my art somewhere where people know how to keep time.

    Happy New Year Steve, you have been too silent these days and you are missed. I hope 2017 has a lot of great things in store for you which will mean us as well with some new music coming. I know you have your solo album, a new KK and maybe a new GB3. I hope The Church do some more albums, looking forward to hearing from you in music and post.

    Take care,

    America is the F word. It’s a big stupid place where oh the abortion clinic models sway so scantily and hey “we make money no matter what we throw at em” they say. Money yea big money. We gotta build the wall to keep “drugs” out yea and then we go and make more money with our insane weed factories uhh colorado and yea we big shot Americans got the guns and the big flat screen tubes to go with it. Yea man let’s have some beers tonight and we can watch the Oklahoma cowboys go against the buffalo wing bills in the bowl game. “Crowd cheers yea this is…. America! (the piece of dog shit). Yea and we’ll get those nachos with jalapeños and drive our tanks right on those other nations flags. How cool. Yea we’ll get lots of oil in our big big cars that have been designed by Pinocchio in his days when he was not real and couldn’t design things on a computer drafting program well. And hey man anything goes. I’m just proud to be American bc it means I’m a little asshole thinks he’s entitled to everything and has completely drained any ounce of creativity with beer and pornography and weed and thinking falsely that this is a great place. What a waste you know. Just a big stupid waste. Indoctrinate the children who have nothing in big stupid schools where teachers are they to earn their little coins. I could go on and on. Reason being… My life here so far has been an utter waste. Really has. Best advice from a ” real”American … “Get out. Get out while you still can my friend”.
