out of shadows

out of shadows

the dank dirt dealt in darkness

the seething propensity of city by the sea

oozing floozies and floorshow flesh home

the taloned and fanged furies following on

disjointed unannointed disappointment

corrosive explosive surge of traffic baffling the bends

the full stop of propellors in the too thick air

they never will land anywhere

jelly and lamb as sick as i am

i force you to main course i do

divorced in corsica or something formless let me see

the doggerel biting ankle deep in steeped tea

the spirit of lucien set free

i’m a little bigshot from the CBD

with my stripe tie die as i try i never seem to

its the idiomatic lie that i ever dream to

concrete bunker hunker down who’d have thunk it?

they can just print more money …cant they..?

    ‘Jelly & lamb as sick as I am’

    Thankfully I am well & desire to remain so. Trustfully this is not you. & if u r unwell you will recover quickly.
    Though the microbiologist in me thought the sick soul I felt may havebeen suffering from the symptoms of an illness such as meningococcal. I could sense the sickness runnjng through the person whole body including the spine.
    I heard the next day on the radio, a little one had just passed away from the disease.
    Was this my Lord passing through carrying the infirmities of this little one, before He took said home.
    Was I meant to get up & pray hardcore in the wee hours of the morning for a different change of outcome. Was it to be what it was to be?

      if the childs fate lay in some strangers stray prayer i’d say thats a pretty random old jehovah you got yourself there
      and its all based on some scrolls from a bunch of desert tribes ignorant superstition and youre still channelling the lords (anglisized) name in vain
      jehovah jehovah jehovah ha ha ha how many times i8n hell
      for taking your lords name in vain. his real name is BIg Mr Nasty Pants (thats in aramaic of course)

        I don’t channel anything. It is offensive to me and I see the harm that evenuates from those who do.
        I use the authority in Jesus Christ given to all His followers to overcome situations.

          you are a total ninny. jesus told people to think for themselves.
          tell me what are your good deeds instead of spouting inanities from
          a 2000 year old desert scroll ?

            Y speak of my good deeds when the acts that led me off the path r more interesting.
            But u lads r always trying 2 find out a girl’s darkest secret.
            There is nothing that I hav not shared or spoken aloud.

            I do not need to validate myself by speaking of good deeds. What I do is who I am.
            I am saved by faith. For it is said ‘for as the body without the spirit is dead.
            So faith without works is dead also.’

            2000yr old words that still have bearing, guidance & direction within their parts.
            therefore then how old is the devils lying tongue.

            Hey Anon 8.47, if ‘faith without works is dead’ then you’re NOT ‘saved by faith’ – unless you also do good deeds. Your faith alone is nothing. You need to act.
            But you don’t, do you? Like most Christians, you just spout your bullshit and let the world rot around you. Steve’s right – Jesus would despise you.

    Have you not heard pf miracles. It can be the difference between life and death.
    If one is called to prayer amd perseveres in supplication till a result is seen and experienced.
    In the event of OT story of King David he supplicated & fasted for the life of his child until he was informed the child had gone. In the event of the Bell’s Palsy the witches at work paralyzed my face with their spiritual manipulations. This took 10days of constant prayer &songs of praise to JC every spare moment I had to undo the spiritual harm thrown at me. BP is commonly known to take greater than 3 months to heal. Medical science doesn’t know what causes it.
    Sometimes sickness is of not a natural cause as such as succumbing to a bacterial infection. Those who practice in the dark arts can send sickness with the same physical oppressiveness on the body.
    Where one is required to use spiritual aurhority in jesus christ to shut it down.

    Hey! I check in every now and then to see what you’re up too. Looking forward to getting your DVD!

    I see there have been a lot of interesting debates lately. I guess you have been doing a lot of thinking and reading about Jesus Christ. I think the biggest thing to take away from his life and message is the absolute necessity of becoming a loving, unselfish person. However, anyone who has attempted to live out his teachings immediately discovers how difficult this is to do. But its better to try and keep trying than not try at all. This sad world needs more good people.

    It’s Father’s Day here in the USA – don’t know if it is there or not. Anyway, all the best to you and your girls! Peace!!

    Great stuff Steve! Has the feel of Dylan Thomas, mood wise, at least to me. I am fascinated by the various commenters who speak with such authority on jesus or other religions. Reminds me of the line in Hamlet, “the lady doth protest too much, methinks”. Why the desire to hard sell any ideology? Seems almost as if the person is trying to convince his or her self. My 14 year old son approached me the other day about religion etc after getting some stuff also “hard sold” to him by so called authority figures. My response to him was that any human being that tells him with absolute certainty the meaning of life (or lack thereof) or specifically what happens when any of us die is only guessing. Period. Can anyone dispute that statement? If not why the animosity?

      Man, you should read ‘Proof of Heaven’ by Dr. Eben Alexander…

      • avatar
        freddie free man | 17 June 2014 at 11:58 am #

        Probably a great book Chris, but still just a guess. A quick search of the web, “Alexander had been terminated or suspended from multiple hospital positions, and had been the subject of several malpractice lawsuits, including at least two involving the alteration of medical records to cover up a medical error. ”

        I have nothing against Mr. Alexander, but a human writing a book “proving” heaven is absurd. Period. I’m not saying specifically what I believe, bottom line no living human has the absolute proof of what any of this is about, especially after death.

        Chris, faith not only doesn’t need proof, it’s actively undermined by it. You can’t have both at the same time.
        Why not? Because faith isn’t science – it’s not based on proof.
        Think about it – if there’s proof of something, there’s no need to have any faith in it.
        And as it’s faith that fuels religion, the last thing you want is proof.

          but faith gives man something higher than himself to look at in the mirror. which, in itself, is a saving grace. science is fun but always sided towards the one who pays for (or hides) it. I mean, come on, we all know that — every single day; and yet tomorrow science (I mean money, no – I mean politics, no – I mean power) will prove today was wrong. so have a little faith… it’s actually pretty once you’ve been. yes, I know you may think silly, but it’s the one constant to always stay true.

          heard the other day – an old friend who travels all over buys gems… he won’t be going to Australia much longer to make purchases… Australia’s minerals are going to explode in price – upwards! Apparently, the govt has arranged for the sale of 90 percent of Australia’s mining rights to the Chinese within some other deal of recent… It will be like it has been before to buy a tanzanite from Africa as a controlled market for obscenely high prices for the new owner; he’d heard too soon the humanitarian arrival of new refugee immigrants will be available to help mine.

    Half a mile ahead, pastel-tinted, green-shuttered houses—a village of a single straggling street—detached themselves in broken perspective from the purple of pine-crowned cliff and headland beyond. Behind them the western sky began to grow golden with the approach of sunset. The road lead straight towards that softly golden light—to St. Augustin. It led further, deeper into the gold, deeper, as one might fancy, into the heart of the coming sunset, namely to the world-famous seaport of Marseilles.

    but really good info:

    the guy presenting is a little over-energized and his sense of humor is not dry at all but he is fearless in presenting food facts and makes no bones of right/wrong*; and condensed, this video seems the most non-garbage presentation I have ever come across (though I don’t believe in eating another creature’s flesh but at least if one is to, his guideline(s) seem better). if anyone is interested.

    *a recent study of children shows only 10 percent still know the difference between right/wrong… we’ve been fed so much garbage nobody knows how to identify good from bad (eating et al).
