left to my own devices
i appear in japan one afternoon
obliviously high
in the crowded markets
pressed into my new suit
armed and dangerously calm
hugging the coastline
in a series of hotel/motels
i undo em
you wanted it so deep
deep in the past
up to the hilt in years
i unwind and unwind
blindly binding my mind to your will
blowing my shot into this abyss
somewhere in space a satellite shifts
lifting the lid on the kids navigation bid
but the boss cant tolerate loss
he sits in his villa stiller and stiller
calls me the killer
calls me direct
tells me collect
so here i am maybe
maybe not
outside the door or
in the vacant lot
no blade
no knife
no gun
no movement
you dont see it
you only feel it
crush your ribbons
break you bonaparte
eat your heart
suck your soul off
now i am nicely inside
with the lightest touch
away again
leaving you standing there

    Hmmm, I'd say you're more Genji than ninja.

    Well fancy that, you've got the same kitchen floor I've got. Nice to see that there's one company alive and well and responsible for the mass production of black diamond flooring from one side of the globe to the other!

    Well I'd never have guessed, that one of your many man-suits would be that of a Ninja, but then again maybe I would! Just be careful whilst you are out there doing your Ninja thing SK, cos it's a well known fact that Ninjas spend their whole lives training just to be killed by Chuck Norris!

    Oh and I hate to contradict you though Sire, there's one thing you NEVER do, and that is to leave us empty.

    Kitchen yoga. Can imagine you in a decorative kimono man suit tending your bonsai. No blade, no knife, no gun.

    That was too F-in cool !!!! SK the crazed Ninja …."Shadow Fist Meets The Time Being". I loved it !!! Please take that story forward and tell the tales of what and how an SK Ninja would move in the dark-slaying the unjust (music industry types) and conquer this land.

    hello sir…sorry i've been away. i've been reading but my computer wouldn't let me comment. but i got a new ibooky last week so all is well…at least in computer land.

    you could be a ninja…a music ninja. you could drop down from the ceiling or spring out from behind the bushes, and instead of cutting our throats…play us a new song.

    take care
