bye jove

i am the mad poet created from the.saurus and DMT

my mind is a bookshop

all the pages missing

only the titles and pictures remain

oh magical realism the tree boughs

i am a useless genius borderlining stupidity and saga-city

my concentration is shot put there by god

my own sweet private god

god of flowers god of rivers

god of beasts god of peace

eden penetrated by that old snake

i wont make that same mistake

in the formlessnesses  before today

i dreamed i was a man in a forest

i talk with great spirit pervading every single thing

you and i and you and i and you and i and

i walk in glimmering groves for everything is sacred

nothing is disincluded

i am primitive man amped up on future now

i simmer and pop in the glades where aya whispers

i coca leaf and indica and treacly oozing poppy

i working class war locked wizard nowaday powerless

the absence of god makes me cry although god is already there

in the heart of every little fish

in the heart of every little stone

your world is sin phoney and out of alignment

your holy books are full of hate i laugh in their general direction

we are all chosen people but chosen for what?

we chose it all ourselves

god is very kind he says

go ahead be steve kilbey

go ahead be john h citizen

go ahead be a fucking water buffalo or a black cat

god give me what i ask for

in a secret place

where i cannot myself hear

what it is i ask of my god

god has no pope presiding over torture and cruelty

he has no truck with missionaries spreading stupid stories

everyone has their own story

my story is my forest and my god and someone i was a long time ago

when i moved through these trees i see before me in a reverie glow

my head outlined in the fires shadow

my feet hundred miles below

    True story: as I went from dance lesson to supermarket today, I thought I felt grateful to leave the drama of the studio and do something ordinary. As I left the supermarket, I felt like yelling out to anyone or no one about how much I hate mundanity. Still, I try to be the best mother I can. While my son is hardly a child anymore, he haa a lot of pressure at school this year. Not that I condone the established school system but it is what he has chosen for the year. Happily, he is discovering his artistic ability! As for my daughter, she is still technically a child but taking on many responsibilities beyond her age and beyond even my experience of which I am in complete awe. She needs my moral support. As for my own soul food, I am pretty resourceful but human cannot live on bread alone! Thank you. I’m sure there is much you would criticise about my life, but if my sins are phoney, are they then sins? 😉 haha! I love those teasers of yours.

    ‘Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you.’

    I really don’t know where to start with this prose and the so many misconceptions you have presented. I would like to think the world is a symphony. The question begs ‘what is ‘real’sin?? Warlock Wizardry does not bring about actions of loving one’s neighbour as oneself. Hate comes from the human heart and the deceptive spirit of this world. The holy book is history and future, emotions and directions, guidance, teaching and authority, hopes and promise, exile, inclusiveness, eternity and forever afters, truths and revelations, life and death. Yet also begs the question my sister thinks her tarot card bible is her holy book. But her deception gives it away when she attempts to hide it when I enter the room. Her own conscience says she should not be dabbling.

        I have never always agreed with the acts that took place in the old testament. But again much came from the heart for power, for titles, for land and wealth grabs, for slavery and the like, even jealousy played its part. No different from today. Jesus shows a better way and the promised future.

            Those acts violate the truth of human brothership. For if you truly loved one as yourself, then it would be impossible to do such harm to another or standby and watch the harm. Such as that which goes on in torture. As many may be ignorant of the symptoms produced upon another by the practice of the dark arts, with the exception of those who purposely go out to do harm using the spirit/demon world.
            Yes each day I struggle not to curse. But one day my anger may be so great and uncontrollable that the words will just fall out and kit will be wished upon that that they will regret they ever pushed me tovthe full brink. I guess the saving grace is God the heavenly Father keeps my angef in check. But He will only tolerate so much of these abhorrant acts, acknowledging His continual mercy before he steps in.Lately He has given me this message ‘mercy, mercy, me’. Interpret it as you will.

            im sorry but when you talk about god the heavenly father if you mean that character jehovah then count me out
            he is a petty silly and obviously invented figment of some old deluded hebrew. to me its rubbish and its results have been rubbish.
            i hear a voice from god too
            it comes through in everything i do
            my god is so far opposite of that old wives tale jehovah
            my god is ineffable joy love and mercy
            this is the only god i have ever met
            and he aint contained in no fucking bible

            Sorry to be late to the discussion, but for anyone needing a clear example, watch the movie “The Magdalene Sisters”.

        I’m guessingno difference to the deception of who u choose to be. Steve kilbey/John citizen/water buffalo/black cat. I on the other hand have desired to be no one but me.

          Jesus says if you know me then you know the Father.
          Isaiah 26:4 trust ye in the Lord for ever for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.
          Jeremiah 31:34 (& similiarly Hebrews 8:11) & they shall teach no more every man his neighbour & every man his brother saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them;
          I agree God is love joy mercy but He is also just and like any Father He disciplines when one child wrongs another or just wrongs, and He lays down His judgement. The question is is He now gathering that small remnant of truth sayers because of the liars and wolves that got into the church to deceive and lead astray.
          I agree God is not contained in any book, for He is omnipresent, but His word is living and His writings given to us help to discern the truth from those preaching in the pulpit giving their own personal interpretation and not the Holy Spirit guided interpretation.

          Cocoama, looks like good viewing. Goes along the same theme as the book ‘ten hail marys’ by kate howarth and the recent movie ‘philomena’

    Steve is a hopeless liar! I have noticed he does say the opposite of what he means at times and it is a kind of game but I like his humour. Ok sometimes not when I ‘m being humourless and that works vice versa too, I guess in many relationships. Not many people can admit to envy either. Someone asked me a question about themselves today and it was so obvious the answer was envy but I felt I couldn’t be honest there so I just made a joke. If only that person could have been honest with themselves and admitted their envy. I’m not saying the envy was justified or that I would have judged them for admitting but just to have the guts… many of us are learning these things through our day to day experience and searching, mistakes, humanity. To be able to say sorry…

    Surely God has moved with the times and is not necessarily ‘He’.

    Come on peeps, the Bible is a book, and in every book there is a lesson to be learned, that’s pure and simple. Doesn’t matter if you think the book is fiction or nonfiction, only thing that matters is if you get something out of it and live your life to the fullest and most holy in it’s terms, or in other words be a fucking cool person and be kind and LOVE everyone and everything with dignity. That’s all, it’s a good book with a good message regardless how old or outdated it is, every book has a message and The Bible transcends because it’s got the basics of life’s lessons and trials. Only thing is it was written so long ago a lot of people don’t get it, but if it was written today I’d be curious how it would be written? Probably in mp3, would have a website, and Jesus would Skype heal everyone! Holy Water and Holy Wine would be Holy Moly lets get together on the web and eat Mostaccioli..with our without meat of course.
