windy city

windy city

in the grinding journeys sudden lurching halt

in the shape of an electric bass guitar

my only constant companion in sunburst body

we have made such easy work of the whole thing

2 nights more then the crusade is over for at least ever

the singing droning ringing of my ears in a silent room

always encaged in last nights music and beyond

bought 50 dollars worth off a waiter

have another coffee

the day room at night

age is officially wearying me obviously despite everything i am after all nearly 62

some nights the force couldn’t seem to be with me

then other times its all ticketty boo

the days indeed rush past with a ferocity and an awful brevity

we now done our last long drive

now we live on our bus for 2 days before flying home

it aint that bad

soon we do our meet n greet

man i better try n squeeze in some yoga

without my daily dip in the pacific

yoga is my only virtue

making up for too much weed or absinthe or chips or chocolate sponge cake

yeah i only human ha ha it takes one to know one

over n out space caddies

sk in chicago

but with no transit authority

    Hey Steve, you guys put on a great show in Buffalo. It was kind of a strange venue with everybody sitting down at tables, but still a rocking show. “You Took”…wow, it was transcendental. Damn I love this album. Hope you guys come back to Toronto next time, but it was well worth the trek to Buffalo. Anyway, another great show by the best band out there. Safe travels back home.

    <3 did you ever check out that wonderful website link I pasted a while back to help with auditory issues…….help to rest the ears in an oceanic soundscape or a gentle forest breeze amidst rich insect life or whatever you choose.

    Ah absinthe! The ol green faerie. Saw that Lucid. Last time I ran bare throughout a forest dancing among the thickets and thorns and came out spotless from wounds. Hope the visions were wonderful and wormwood granted access to the primal secrets of nature…
    Great tour Steve! You can soon journey home and cut yourself free of the Crusade and start practicing some Bowie. Cheers and again thanks for venturing to the states yet once again. Till next time…

    Pretend it’s 26 not 62! I think that kind of tour would be gruelling for anyone.

    Your virtuosity more than makes up for a lack of virtue. Happy trip home!

    Oceanic islands. Oh how the sirens may try to play the bagpipes at you. Avalon nears the real edge of the world they have cleverly hid from us. Inflicting us with the rigid pains of a sphere. Every skyline they’ve already photographed and made us. Spell out the letters in a school so they could sell us the pencils they manufactured with a disregard of a missing aesthetic. Money over matter they said. Sage green the perfect color of a bill or anything! We already knew this when we were very young the vibrations that slipped away from the rigid motions of the Roman alphabet But I don’t complain or feel the tickle of cynics that’s a cakewalk of illness. I am here to know that I am blind. I am here to know I am deaf. I am here to be a shade of sage green foolish wisdom knowing that I must know nothing. That I can’t know really anything except that which I must except that which I love and that is all… Kevyn <3

    Hey Steve! Can’t wait to “Meet You in Saint Louie!” Forget Chicago! It’s been a long time my friend, since 1994 you’ve been here, St. Louie! Looking forward to it for sure! Last time we met was in Chicago, remember, 2015? First time meeting Ian, then we got kicked out, you asked me “hey are you the Kraig!?” LOL Was fun! Hey, do you have VIP for the Saint Louis gig? Looking forward to it! Hoping to see you and the gang again! Many Cheers!Kraig
