read it already in hyperion

gun in saturn

return in my stars

the last man on mars please turn out the light

my mind will not focus

this sort of froth runneth over and out

this fountain of brain once over excited

now like my ears it never stops

it must tick over like an engine

is this very thing madness….?

still i must be sure

still i must be certain

still i must be prepared to be wrong

i deal in illusions

without ever having to define reality or fiction

i have peddled my words to you all

is any of this really me?

(of course)

no none of it at all

i am a superior computer predicting what you expect me to write

i am one step ahead of you in this game

i know what you want

your wishes steer my course

but there is no me behind here

my forged notes still buy you whatever you need

my fake mastered pieces still masterpieces

in some worlds i would be feted

in some worlds totally ignored

i am not one thing or the other

so i type and i type

its 11.11

thats probably enough….

    during an exceptionally challenging week
    i found comfort visiting the time being
    where the poet always challenges me to see
    life in a spectrum where it’s easier to breathe
    and the words of its visitors complement the cool breeze
    that blows about my suburban cage when i’m feeling defeated
    but even your simple acts of “fakery” are rather complete
    where even one line speaks to who i am and where i could be
    your work ethic is exceptional, and i think we all agree

    To be off course is of course not off course. How else can you write mustard peases? But I am the last person or thing you should listen to.

    This one is a study in humility, which is why Steve is so ‘in touch’ and ‘connected’ with his muse and the human perception of reality. This is why lines like “tell those girls with rifles for minds” come into my mind and resonate with me every few days. His poems aren’t “forged notes” or “fake masterpieces”…they’re gems of genius.

    a gutted bell waits for a pardon
    no words can come
    only thoughts of blame
    but it was me who fucked up
    my instincts were extinguished by fears of my extinction
    all that faulty fucking code

    i turn over the tea leaves
    i want to choose again
    but it’s too late now, the fragment is cooked
    my brow-shaded eye is blind
    my human ear echoes
    my pores are numb
    my mind meets exclusively with its stupefied self

    only the wilderness doesn’t give a fuck
    it has no patience for ignorance
    some things must die so that others can live
    death is the deal, every day
    we enter
    only with a mountain of earth and a sharpened sword
    the end is the beginning, there is no other way

    my stadium of images is blown away
    and only then can i speak

    the illusionists
    subject to illusion themselves

    hence all they ever wanted to see
    remained invisibly
