slim prophet of the margin

slim prophet of the margin

and lo it came to pass that in those days

men could sing certain things into being

and that these beings walked on this earth with those men

strange loveliness o my Talitha..!

the last days of Assyria the imperial measured fall into histories of abyss

the dragon the lynx the female chimerae the winged bull

beautiful monstrosity un-statued marble eye

the crown of all india

the graceless whining of century upon century

the forgiveness we are unable to muster

the cloaked place in the woods where we meet and fuck

the mirror catches sight of some dreadful little pig; an involuntary shudder

the far sighted archer apollo himself the prince of all musicians

why! he guides these song weapons home driven into the idiot hearts of the hoi polloi

why! he has visited me in dream and laughed at my useless offerings

why! i am remade in his image now somehow i can hear him

the words drop out of the sky like birds of burden

my crash oh behold its necessity yonder as ungrateful slurs and spleen

baby lonely in babylonian embrace

i pictured it as the empress in the gutter on her knees

i am a mere poet i record these scenes and forget them

i resurface again and again in the worlds that are out there

we all do

but some cannot listen

but i do!

    One of your Detroit fans. Enjoy the flow of words on your blog. They ease the passing of time. Missed all your West coast shows, but I am very pleased to see attendance for the shows are way up! I enjoy the Church only shows, but wish they were better attended here in the States.

    I am interested in your 2014 bio. Wondering if there will be another printing or a Kindle version. Let the Universe continue to speak through your music, poetry and art.

    Best Regards

        Is that on the Australian Amazon Site? I am looking now on the U.S. site and can’t find a kindle version. On the U.S. site it seems to be out of print and only available as a Paper Back.

        If there are no scheduled reprintings, I guess I need to purchase from a third party seller.

    “Tell me again how many men have only drifted now and then. Never realized. Say I’m the first. Say I’m the worst. Shoulda been here when the bubble burst my favourite pack of lies!” You have an amazing talent Kilbey for writing these ethereal shall I say surreal poems. I’ll always enjoy them. As for me. I’m taking a hiatus from my breton filled poetry days. I’m concentrating on my irish tin whistle. Yes , even though I’m english by blue genes. I figure I only have so much time on my hands and although I feel I have a minor talent in surreal poetry. I’m going to concentrate on my college major in music and become the best tin whistler and theremin player I can possibly be. And I’m building kraftwerks 1975 drum kit too! So when I need my fix on the surreal world out there to get away from the real world duldrums I’m going to click on TheTimeBeing and read you! Like I’ve been for like 10 years now close I bet. Keep these Atlantean crystal ball Rimbaud church pencil crusades going on!! Much love from a long time fan. Your friend and admirer Kevyn of pittsburgh. Ps… Is it the time being as of say now? Or is it a being made of time? Please let me know! : )
