for cast doom

four cast doom

this madness of lives

this struggle between angel and beast

caught in the middle i fiddle while the earth burns

man now you can believe nothing

they lied to you

you lied to them

they took from you

you took from them

futility you found a good friend there

anxiety another monster you need to take care of

flattery you little bastard you are certainly everywhere by now

in the dimness of summer afternoon fucked up on weed and yoga

i hit upon a million ideas at once

contorted into an asana its so obvious its all so obvious

this horrible world of men ah it will be a pleasure to shut the door on it

this is true life… krsna and the images of gnostic saints

jesus and so many lovely buddhas

my mind gushes forth evanescent schemes that rush into my rooms and disappear

i vividly remember strange scenes from my life when i exhibited hubris or surliness

the horrible curse of narcissism which afflicteth me in spades and hearts

the rush of evil that hath fuelled divers trespasses

the rush of god when he comes flooding in

on a golden warm sweetness that will smack you down boy

filled with arrows of desire you crash into white

slipping through the surface of reality

a thousand channels just under the elastic edges

music plays like music never heard before

so all music before that was just noise

yeah so i’ll leave it there

there

and there

    To pick Alan Watts’ pocket… it’s the valleys that make peaks possible. It’s the intervals you insert into the noise that make music. Silence, transitions… these things matter.

    we all have our light and dark side
    one can overcome the other
    depending on our choices
    when all doors remain closed
    there is one that always remains open
    remorse

    p.s. it says 6 comments were made but I only see 1 ?

      The cry of all words ever spoken translated into the pop of a soda can and it goes to show I didn’t understand the obscure trend of a disco dance. It was fun that night. For all mankind has shared a breath of air thousands with a saint and with a witch and beast yet the purity was diluted thankfully or tragically. Two sides of a hexagonal coin is all. Solemnity becomes an art piece which madam madam checks herself in the mirror to compare efforts of aesthetics and then she comes to melancholy a most peculiar form of joy

    Hey Mr Kilbey. Hope your Christmas was great you and the Church are the nicest. Best band. And your poetry I’ve been reading years probably about 8 maybe. I saw online years ago you were influenced by Rimbaud who was tragic but also andre breton. Who I think has great poems. But I don’t know if you are a huge fan. But. I mean here’s the flattery that gets me everywhere Mr Kilbey. Hehe. Your poetry is original. I don’t know anyone who writes quite like you. I suppose you would call your writing prose ? I wrote a surrealist prose book and a short surrealist tale. But I want you to know if it wasn’t for your blog. I wouldn’t have even been interested in breton. Or known. So to sum it up. Distinctly beautiful music awesome poetry ongoing. Great lyrics and awesome music videos. My only complaints are the DVD souvenirs and goldfish doesn’t play on my American DVD player darnit. I sometimes sense a bit of bowie in the early Church music. You kind of have a bowie expression in that bel air video. I play that at pittsburgh guitars and John the owner always says there you go! I talk a lot. I’ll keep it short in the future. You the Church and former church all rock. Tim was great at pittsburgh but that Ploog was out of this world. Bless you folks. Kevin

    Hey Mr Kilbey. Please ignore my last message. The only worthy things I have to say is my poem lingo. Lol.

    Time zones thin out the inspirations of… Inspiration itself. Where have the jubilations fled? Pan is dead proclaims Neitzche. I object says the news politician. The commercials about steak play on and on all the noble surnames and all names have lost their originality. All of the nonverbal communications of hope have been marred by last minute text messages. Bring us back to the lemurian poet they say. Back. Further back
