wholly profit

trapdoor

entrance to another continuum

i see it before me in sepia

desert star city flower blood wine iron flesh

the great pretender my crown usurper

i wove through the reeds hidden from sight

i move through the grove in golden light

my concubine number nine divine

as our minds entwine in knowledge of abandon

the trees bleed white leaves for my liege love

land lady to the sea

every man now lay down your labour

bring forth endless poems and songs

in my tower insane i conjure up music

yes music had not been extant before on this plane

i start with music dragged from the triple world

the screams of hell

the sighs of earth

the soft laughter of heaven

i beat sound into new shapes

i set it free from my battlements

oh my song go on for long time

hunting down men and women

flying through the deepest forest

where sad children hide

there flourisheth my song

it doth pierce the side of nightmare black

my song travel up your spine

my song is barbed hooked and sharp

it enters you zinging your pingi

i weave my briton ancestors will into my work

i will subjugate the conqueror

i will serve the one and true god

he who may provideth my best victory

the trees are sacred to me

yes i do know and love their spirits

i see them dancing in the magic of opium shadows

i hear their weird voices sing my song back

the druids from whose loins i sprang were attuned

attuned like the rishis

attuned like the dervish

attuned like the gnostic

attuned like the medicine man and shaman ron

attuned like some buddha levitating in crimson

attuned like vishnu whose glory is incomprehensible

attuned like jesus the reader of hearts

whoever you were sir jesus what a man

jesus went to the garden of gilgamesh

he said hey cats take it easy

he said hey come on lets help one another

he said hey cmon try to be nice

he said some other stuff too but i wasnt there

me…?

where was i that day…? someone asks

i was tailor sewing a thread

i was a norseman soon to be dead

i was a trader making good bread

i was woman with a beautiful head

i was a child crippled in bed

i was a an old hag all dressed in red

no none of its true i just dont know

i digress and digress

i can write whatever i like

i can go wherever it takes me

now you see my mind in horror scope

zoom in and out

move your cursor to my memory bank

select desired item

simply enter your code in column thirteen

and soon victory will be yours

kingdoms will unravel at your feet

you will sweep worlds before your scimitar

women will comfort you in your generous quarters

from my private stock of drowsy nepenthe

i have selected a block drop of oblivion

drink up my friends

i am here to sing you the lay of Excelon and Etiene

i am here with my computer orchestra of minions

we touch a switch we increase the poignancy quotient

unbearable brightness shine upon soul

we kneel before our saviour but she has no name

we cannot see through this great effulgence

daughter of sand mother of moon

all mortals exit this theatre too soon

    I think he said something like mary magdalene be my friend, too. Then I misread ‘lay’ as ‘lady’ (good heavens you used some capitals, I see). Not at all narcissistically was pleased to see this end on a feminine note.

    Simply mesmerizing !!!

    Have a grand and healthy weekend SK
    You will never actually reach your summit,
    because for you my friend- it is to far off in the distance-
    You work way to hard for there ever to be a level, where you have
    achieved it all- you always will ‘up one’ even regarding
    your own extraordinary work.

    ‘I start with music dragged from the triple world’…the creative process that sustains the universe
    a Taoist take/interpretation might be
    great yin (heaven), great yang (earth) and the central harmony that is represented by humanity
    on a microcosmic level…The Three Treasures (essence, vitality and spirit)

    Hey-
    When r u officially moving in2 ur new place? I think all of us would love a video introduction to your new home, a bit similar to the amazingly funny vid u did of that hotel room last year in DC. When I re-watch that one I always laugh at the thought of u possibly leading a ‘secret life’ as an assassin and u had that great window view of DC from the hotel – as if u were staking out the terrain. Maybe, just maybe u are that secret person in disguise as a ‘Rock God’ (that is funny- but iv been at many shows were you get the cougars all in a foam as you prance around the stage…they go crazy for/on u…u have to beat them off with a stick- or a cane for that matter).
    That’s why everyone calls u …KILLER !!!

        Yeah-
        Well I got a pipeline straight to ya and have a great ‘home warming’ gift in mind. Just need for it to properly coincide with your ‘move in’. Its already purchased and boxed so its coming over land ,sea, and air soon enough. You will smirk and wonder how did he do that- the clever little Dazza that he is (or at least thinks he is).

        Cannot wait to see the new place…and potential vid and…what the heck is goin on with the SOH concert DVD??? Your killing all of us who were not able to see it, only as a couple of snipers. If ya get that vid in HD out in the retail world- I believe a nice revenue stream will result and the coffers will begin over flow. Wishful thinking and jealousy motivate my opinion on this, not witnessing the entire concert- almost s year from its date, is killing all of us. Please help…. 🙂

          Oh –
          I cannot be to jealous, I got a huge spread in Chicago. 6 bedrooms, 3 floors including basement with a play (kid and adult) area. 100 yards from one of the most beautiful parks in all of Chicago, Portage Park. With lush trees- paths and hills- olympic pools and state of the art facilities with an indoor pool. And I have 5…yes 5 bathrooms. This flipping house is huge. My kitchen alone is 25×15 feet. Hard to b jealous of anyone when ya got a kitchen that big.

            Its an old ‘in-law’ home built in 1939. It is weathered but she’s home for us. Luckily right b4 ‘major back’ injury in April 2006, I had finished all the interior remodel myself- walls, bathrooms, original wood floors refinished, painting.

            My 70+ year old mother lives upstairs in ‘half’ the hone so for my wife, Laura – it is an old ‘in-law’ home…LOL…

    Those dervishes were surely mesmerizing, well worth fighting the claustrophobia to c them in the cave something I’ll never forget.
    Don’t know how u come up with a different blogge every day, tis a great gift indeed.

    Lassa nite d n I had a bit of time to fill in whilst waiting for a bus in North Sydney and heard some music coming from a Pub. Curious as we are we went to see what was happening and as soon as we walked in I said “d he’s talking about The Church!” He said “I was at the Zoo last Saturday and saw The Church and they were FANTASTIC!!!!” d n I made our way up towards the front and he saw us and said “I saw u two up dancing at the Zoo”. We said yeah The Church were amazing, and both did the thumbs up to him. When they had a break I asked him if he knew u and he said Yes, he knows all the Church. Wish we had of popped in earlier to hear what else he said, guess they played a Church song. Sure he and us aren’t the only ones raving about the Zoo gig, wish u had a repeat gig tonite, we’ld be there again for sure! Have to make do with playing P=A.
    So weird to c this strange thing out called the sun, had forgotten what a fine day was like. Sure we all are feeling a bit brighter to c it again.

    Have a happy sunny (fingers crossed) weekend.

    Peace & love
