the deplorable word

seriously what did you expect……?

maybe it was them alien implants in my back

maybe it was all them damn drugs and parties

maybe it was because of england and australia

maybe it was because of sgt peppers

maybe it was because of the idiots out there everywhere

maybe it was because my dad could play the piano

maybe it was because i just knew some things

maybe it was because of things i just could never know

maybe it was the vegetarianism

maybe it was the decade of smack and ruin

maybe it was all the daughters

maybe it was the 2 sets of twins

maybe it was destiny or luck or are they the same

maybe it was all the songs i wrote

maybe it was the disappointments and the dishonesty

maybe it was because i got more than i deserved

maybe it was because i never got what was coming to me

maybe it was because of the trauma to me ears

maybe it was the evil in us all

maybe it was the arrogance and the big mouth

maybe it was the narcissism and the indolence

maybe it was all the flights everywhere and back

maybe it was the aria awards and the new york arrest

maybe it was my charity work or the kick in the balls

maybe it was my  florid lyrics and stupid voice

maybe it was my intrepid intelligence unknown to itself

maybe it was the venues empty and full

maybe it was the nights alone though with company

maybe it was ploogy or maybe it was grant

maybe it was sweden oh i loved it so much

maybe it was bolan and the way that he lost it

maybe it was krsna who makes it sublime

maybe it was jesus walking there with me

maybe it was the devil who lets me have fun

maybe it was the money or maybe the scenery

maybe baby

you could have been the one

    somethings there are no answers for
    perhaps our brains just can’t understand yet, trust the hearts code, intuition.
    but one thing any switched on druid will tell ya,
    it’s not a random universe.
    look for patterns, life is fractal.

      Oh, I sooooo love that! I’ve been wanting to come up w/ an expression, well, THE perfect expression for this life, as we sort out the chaos and confusion into a neat orderly pattern. YOU have done that for me with the expression, “Life is factal”. Thanks!

    Maybe it was fate…
    Maybe it was faith…
    Maybe it was the brilliance …
    Maybe it was sheer stupidity…
    Maybe it was unconditional love…
    Maybe it was wretched hate…
    It was as simple as chance,
    I met a beautiful lady
    I married her as the rain fell
    I gave her a child
    I live my life thru her
    I love her like no one before
    I will love her forever
    And today is my birthday…and
    I am blessed to spend eternity with her.
    I love you Laura, Alex, and my angel Kristina

    Maybe I finally realized how truly lucky
    I am.

    And thanks SK for allowing me to post and contribute
    to this extraordinary world we call our digital home…

    AsAlways and 1 year older,

    Man what a ride, like a rollercoaster up and down. Steve you have lived life, not too many can say that and really know the meaning of truly living. Icon is the word I use to descibe you to many, your one of the greats in the giant scheme of it all and I look forward to the next 50 years of maybes. All of your maybes have attracted a group of individuals who can relate and appreciate your world view, we are all flawed/inspired in many ways, most do not have the courage to admit their shortcomings or even worse are not self aware. Maybe it was Happenstance or pure determination which can cause one to make mistakes or regrets. Thats how we learn and grow. The ups and the downs would you really want to do it any other way?

    Take care,

    you know, it’s exactly as it’s supposed to be
    your life, their lives, that thing we call eternity
    thrown together and torn apart, confidence and insecurity
    the seasons of our lives, null and void, growth and prosperity
    survive this maddening asylum and endure to the very end hopefully
    navigating as a calculating captain tossed about on a wild and ferocious sea
    or timid as a meandering mouse looking for crumbs or a tiny sliver of cheese
    history repeating itself over with different characters with capabilities
    all designed to impact one another to fulfill their unwritten destinies
    intersecting paths face to face, through media, or behind the scences
    helping all recognize the lessons we need to learn to ease our sufferings
    perhaps, possibly, just maybe…

    Speaking of Grant, I just learned that my colleague, the poet James Harms, has a new book coming out, titled after of one GM’s songs, Comet Scar. I think there will be a little homage to GM at the beginning. SK, I’ll send you a copy when it hits print. You and he made some great music. (If anyone here doesn’t have Snow Job, get it! It’s a gem.)

    In some ways I’m greatful. Thank you for the collateral. It was a long time ago and mostly very sincere, though a line here or there I could have done without (‘…you’re worthless’ oh REALLY? naaahh). Did my daddy put you up to it all? hmm. Well, he is my TRUE destiny ya know. Guy’s with the same/similar moon as moi never really were good to me. But the SUN… ahh!!.. now that’s a different matter!!! 😀

    Maybe it was Dad who was never there
    Maybe cuz when he was he was did nothing but punish
    Maybe Mum who was not allowed to care
    Maybe like Cinderella who never went to the ball
    Maybe the memory of being scared and ignored
    Maybe cuz I was never allowed to be anything at all
    Maybe cuz my brilliance remained unnamed
    Maybe the fact that I married right back into it
    Maybe the way I stayed underwater thinking love was air
    Maybe cuz I believed the negativity was solely due to me
    Maybe it was drowning when Mum passed away
    Maybe the scotch, the official beverage of death
    Maybe I jumped into that race because nothing was left
    Maybe the marriage was a farce and the bars a final rest
    Maybe the drugs and the sex and the longing for love
    Maybe the absence outside but the screaming in me
    Maybe it was the arrest, the chains, the tents
    Maybe the rainbow over the razor wire that day
    Maybe my soul broke free and I started to laugh
    Maybe that’s when I realized that I could be anything
    Maybe dropping drink, quitting fags, and fucking fear
    Maybe now it’s how I was originally born
    Maybe the baby who already had everything
    Maybe this is how it was always supposed to be
    Maybe no one in the interim could have been the one, and
    Maybe I’m angrier than I should be
    Maybe this rage is justified
    Maybe it’s all a moot point
    Maybe baby
    It’s just too late

      Its never to late D, you have an army of strength resting at your core…you will fight thru this/that/ and the other. Why???? Because you can…and you will. I believe, your further than half way home. Its all yours – the world thru your eyes. Make it – shape it – take it. The tower of strength, your no longer hiding behind …fuck – your standing proudly in front of it.
      I believe in you, now its your turn…

      AsAlways – here for you from a great distance,

    …maybe the lawn you’re standing on
    looks greener from here
    maybe we’re all lucky enough
    to taste the slices you’re offering

    Want more please, keep cooking Kilbey. You look a little different in this photo, are you getting better rest these days? Did you get a haircut? Take care, enjoy the rest of your winter.

    Sincerely, Anthony

    Maybe the dappled light playing on my ceiling
    Maybe the whirling sound of the wind while my eyes stay closed with sleep
    Maybe the way the trees sweetly sway outside my window that conjures all my dreams
    Maybe baby love, blessings and all the tiny miracles that abound

    maybe my arm gets better after a break, maybe play guitar again, maybe write a good song, maybe there’s life after death, maybe see my mom and dad again, maybe there’s hope, maybe start from scratch.

    That’s a lot of maybes. A stockpile of possibilities. But maybe a person can never have enough maybes. Pull one out in any situation and suddenly anything is possible. I can see why one would horde them. For sure, certainty is very limiting. One thing, no question, no discussion, no dilemma. Who wants to be boxed in like that? I sure don’t. Maybe maybes make it all mean so much more. Maybe.

    “maybe it was the disappointments and the dishonesty”

    Whatever it was, the disappointments inspired one of my favourite songs of all time: “Disappointment”.
