you know who i am
and you know what i do
i am this!
i am that!
you tune in to hear me loop around myself
you witness a man going mad
yet you do nothing
you see
you are included in my poetry here
not i wondered lonely like a crowd of clouds
but you did this
you did that
you taking re sponsa biliti
oh im over a barrel here
i dont wanna be all egotistical n write
being being being
i want to inclued you
exclusively
you as the star of my rants
you as the leading light of a new movement
a revolution of the heart
love in action
you will bathe in the glow of warm applause
you sit in the audience
you stand up and take a bow
no no
the audients arent happy with that
its…a standing fucking ovation !
the crowd are chanting for you
you you you
they want you to grace that stage
the great floodlit podium
you stumble towards the end of your aisle
treading on peoples feet
ooh sorry sir
(are you imagining this ?)
you you you
they cry out for you
you check your pocket for your speech
a sudden panic
wheres your speech
what will you say…?
can you make it all up on the spot?
in fronna all theez peeple…?
a few phrases run through your mind
“uh…unaccustomed as i am to public speaking….”
no no thats no good
“it gives me great pleasure…” well thats ok
nah someone’ll mention mr humphries…
meanwhile youve reached the end of your row
and youre walking towards the stage
clapped on by the adoring mob who cannae get enough
the howling cheering audience
you hop up on the stage easily
only assisted by some stage assistants
when they see you up there
they erupt
you take the microphone
ahem! you clear your throat n test the mic
the crowds cheers persist
with a simple hand gesture you wave them down
reluctantly now at last
they sit and the auditorium is quiet
waiting for your words
but
what will you say?
yes, what will you say?
perhaps a long pause at first
while you look around the room
at your peers
your admirers
your fans
your friends n family
your father and your sisters
your legion of well wishers
and all the faceless blurry faces
towards the back
theyre all here
theyre all waiting
waiting waiting waiting
what will you say to them?
how will you bridge this gap?
how will you
hold all of them?
go on then say it
say whatevers in your mind
go on!
quickly now
before the curtain falls
before they get up and leave
before they close the doors
and turn off all the lights
before afterwards
inevitable afterwards
afterwards waiting too
in amongst the audiences
now speak up
now heat up
now rise up
rise up like a bird….

    SINCE YOU’RE INCREASING YOUR VISUALS,
    I WILL TOO- EASIER ON THE ‘OL EYES (KINDA) AND EVERYONE IN THE STUDIO NOW KNOWS WHAT I’M READING!! YOU’RE MAKING US LAUGH…WE ENJOY THAT WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES FEELING SOME MADNESS- I mean with unidentical twin mansions, triple luxy condos, a church, 14 luxy condos, and some little projects. What’s really mad is the NEW DESIGN CENTRE. Don’t forget my paintings etc. website soon. k? *-) I’m used to public speaking…”There’s nothing like the silver tongue of an architect in a courtroom”

    There’s so much on my mind, I mean besides the excitement of your new music!
    Afterimages of Minna loving Bowie and Hepburn, dear one…Bowie was my favorite when I was your age. I really loved how he made me swoon every time he came out with a new hit song- he was most excellent in his Heyday, still love him to death. I wish you and your father could see ‘Man Who Fell to Earth’ together if you haven’t already. Audrey’s a very stylish classy lady of course- one of my heroins too.

    Steve, I can’t help but think of your recent painting with you and NK featuring your hearts. So you’re interested in illustrating your own books? Not that you NEED an education, but I know this (pretty good) school that specializes- Academy of Art University.

    Thanks for the invitations to unveil, I’ll do it when I’m ready. I’m rather enjoying the shove…

    At this point –

    – I’d be stumbling and squinting to find my way to the podium/mic
    – My hands would be clammy
    – My throat would be dry
    – My face would be stained the colour of beets
    – The heat and glare of the gaslights would confuse and distract me
    – I’d be wishing I had imbibed beforehand as my hands tremble at my sides
    – My heart would be in my fucking mouth
    – I’d start to speak and realise that only a scratchy bleating noise is coming out…

    Thomas Thomsen of Denmark…
    I am right with you on Grind…absolutely sensational song. Love it so much !

    Steve…wots this about your muse whispering in your ear about moving to Melby….would be good to see you play more often…what a fucking bonus ! great city..but you already know that.

    Melby Amanda would no doubt be very happy as well. Melby after Canberra…..real sliding doors stuff…where would you be now ?

    But as you said..”you asked for nothing and got all this”. You should be proud of your achievements, but you also should have had so much more recognition (well as much as you could handle with your anti straight rebelious spirit !)

    Take care.

    when i was a kid i’d get so scared speaking in front of class for reports, essays, and things. hated it…sweating, shaking, but eventually after getting the lead in a couple of plays and doing fine i got over it. but i was a ball of anxiety at first. still get nervous going on stage…but with a band at least there’s others with you. worse when i dj and it’s just me. but as soon as everything gets going the nerves just turn to adrenalin…and that’s a nice little high.
    and yes…would love a live dvd…hoped there would be one from the magnetic strip tour???

    G’day! (big smile)

    I’m out of wine, is anyone going to the bar? (bigger hopeful smile)

    No, seriously. Is anyone near the bar?

    Thanks so very much for your kind thoughts and well wishes, and apologies to my brothers that I haven’t yet fallen down or tripped over anything. Don’t worry guys, the night is young.

    My fellow people of the earth
    Thinking people
    People alive and listening

    I stand before you today fading
    I am the glimmer that gutters
    I am the now that was

    As my words reach you, they are gone
    As my thoughts reach out for new words
    They too have vanished

    All I have to offer you is my presence
    Here before you

    My fleeting appearance
    My transience
    My flickering vibration
    Now here
    Now
    Nowhere

    Blink and I am gone
    Blink and you have come with me

    We will vanish together
    Into cities of earth
    Cities of iron
    And together reappear
    In a world beyond this

    Each to their own world
    And all of us together

    Each of you will address me in turn
    And I will watch you flicker
    As you watch me now
    Flicker
    And go out
    Like a light

    The good news is that all of this
    Is alright

    Thank you and
    Goodnight

    your/my curtain call | 19 July 2007 at 3:56 pm #

    after warming the voice in the audience, going through my scales with my operatic voice,
    I entre stage from my backstage dressing room filled with roses.
    I’m wearing a peachy pink formal evening dress that’s in the similar huge of my natural white skin and hair tones.
    “Tonight, I shall sing for you…a duet of a Rock Opera…similar to Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure”. +takes a deep dramatic bow.
    ‘Thankyou’ crowd is silenced by the presecne of a Sarah Brightman eloquence and announcement.

    I begin to sing the Opera, YOU and the audience stand mezmorized upon hearing my sweet voice…you forget your unwritten lines, so I sing the duet solo (it’s in Italien so it doesn’t matter about the words).

    I strut off stage, unaware that I’ve stolen it….showered in roses.

    Id tell the story of a young girl,eating an apple on a mountaintop.she left her core up there.itd do no harm,as the birds could eat it,or ….its fate was universally harmless.years go by,and the girl wanders up from time to time.a tree has grown.a smallish tree,but none the less,a tree big enough to sit against and ponder and create dreams.for a while,she listens to her calling and honours the knowing for solitary solace,that she feels when sitting under its peaceful healing,nurture.feeling that shes going mad,she abandons the idea that a tree could be so relevant in her life.after all it is only “a tree”.years go by,and shes looking,with a friend,at her arts.the tree seems to constantly be in the background,in every possible representation.she never figures,that in all its significance,that tree was trying to tell her something…as a woman,she returns,to sit on “her”perch,under that tree.theres a smell,and a song….familiar?…but its not the tree that eminates this aura.she stands,and circles the tree,and discovers an oddly familiar stranger,a vision of whom she has portrayed in her poetry as a young girl.the stranger seems to be sketching an identical replication of her painting she did as a 25 year young dreamer.he explains to her that he has been going to this tree for as long as he can recall,but only sitting on his familiar side.he has heard the song of the tree,and now recognizes the familiar scent….its her hair…….i would attempt to teach the crowd about truth,by being,TOO truthful…..Anyway…would any one of you share an apple with that stranger? /xyz

    I am a stag: of seven tines,
    I am a flood: across a plain,
    I am a wind: on a deep lake,
    I am a tear: the Sun lets fall,
    I am a hawk: above the cliff,
    I am a thorn: beneath the nail,
    I am a wonder: among flowers,
    I am a wizard: who but I
    Sets the cool head aflame with smoke?

    I am a spear: that roars for blood,
    I am a salmon: in a pool,
    I am a lure: from paradise,
    I am a hill: where poets walk,
    I am a boar: ruthless and red,
    I am a breaker: threatening doom,
    I am a tide: that drags to death,
    I am an infant: who but I
    Peeps from the unhewn dolmen, arch?

    I am the womb: of every holt,
    I am the blaze: on every hill,
    I am the queen: of every hive,
    I am the shield: for every head,
    I am the tomb: of every hope.

    Or maybe I would just beg for a throat lozenge, or a Sprite.

    do you like Robert Frost

    Essence of winter sleep is on the night,
    The scent of apples: I am drowsing off.
    I cannot rub the strangeness from my sight
    I got from looking through a pane of glass
    I skimmed this morning from the drinking trough
    And held against the world of hoary grass.
    It melted, and I let it fall and break.
    But I was well
    Upon my way to sleep before it fell,
    And I could tell
    What form my dreaming was about to take.

    I would share an apple with a dream. Or the friend of a dream.

    Loathe public speaking but have to do it sometimes, i just focus on some poor bastard in the audience and get on with it. Its never a breeze but sometimes it all works, hey.

    Well, I’d just do what I always do…

    First I grab the mic and say:
    “I’d like to take my top off…for all the ladies in the audience”
    (therein follows 5 mins of lustful female screaming from the gallery)

    Then I say:
    “Thankyou – thankyou very much…you’re too kind.”

    “Well it’s great to be back here at Dapto RSL…
    Dapto is my favourite place in the whole of
    greater Wollongong…(drunken cheers)…I mean,
    god, those dogs can run, can’t they ?” (more drunken cheering)

    Then I introduce the band for any newbies in the audience:
    “Thanks a lot…well, as most of you know
    we are ‘The Church Experience’ – Australia’s premier
    Church tribute band…tonight on guitars we have
    Mighty Waltzman Parper and Peter Cop-this, on drums we have
    the one and only Timpany Power and of course you know me…Keef”

    Then we launch into a three hour set,
    stunning all and sundry with our grace
    and power and style and finger dexterity and perfect pitch
    …basically musical acrobatics for the uninitiated.
    Of course…they love it …they lap it up,
    so much so that we hardly ever get home
    before 10:30pm due to the number of encores !!

    But don’t just take my word for it.
    Why don’t you ask some of the audience members what they thought ?

    “It was really…good” (male patron)

    “I loved how they played ‘Unguarded Moment’ and
    ‘Under the Milky…’ as many times as we asked
    and they even never complained once…
    …that’s what I like from a band” (female patron)

    “I’m hiring them for my niece’s 18th” (male patron)

    “Keef’s bass playing rocks…
    …it’s amazing how he can get all those sounds out of a Squier.” (male patron)

    “I can’t believe how realistic those calves are !” (female patron)

    “I just come for the ‘Heyday’ stories” (female patron)

    “Even better than the real thing !” (male patron)

    So…there you have it…that’s what happens when the spotlights sweeps onto me.

    Years ago my sister used to send me packages of macadamia nuts and hazelnuts/filberts she would get at Trader Joe’s. That was always a special treat.

    Also reminds me we have a Trader Joe’s here now. Maybe I should finally check it out this weekend…. 🙂

    HH Heart, Eek & All,
    Let’s have oysters instead

    Come dine with wine and oyster feast
    The pearls are real, have one for free
    They’re washed up by the foam waved sea
    The more I look the less I smile
    Never mind let’s stay awhile
    The fans blow secrets on the night
    Out of mind
    but not out of sight

    the nuts are a promotional item only, anyhoo.

    Steve, I was at the SFBH with me Missus me and Sister last night and we thought you were grouse.
    The pipes were most impressive… and though maybe at times a bit fast and loose with “the classics” you were so funny it more than made up for it: you should come back for the comedy fest bro! Let me give you an example of what you’d be up against “it’s hard to fuck my girlfriend when I’m smashing in your face” Genius! Ricky Gervais will be kept awake at night by that one…
    Hmmm, Ch Ch is where I grew up and it’s pretty but shitty, but hey if you can handle Perth…speaking of which did you ever tread the boards in Wollongong (sp?) Played there (twice!) in a club where your meals come up on a red LCD screen: Mmmmmmm, real good treat!
    I’m also a Bass player who now plays guitar and the strumming thing is a bit of a trial fer sure, you can kinda soldier on with bass but it throws me out if I get me upstroke confused with me downstroke, then nearly have a stroke and blah blah.
    Mate just Stare in the mirror wearing only golden Y Fronts for an hour chanting “who’s the King” and you’ll recover said mojo in no time flat.
