i manifest evil koala

i manifest evil koala



i exist in the margins












a word where there is no word

my human surface is so thin i feel angel and beast deep within

i feel god and devil duking it out with each colossal clout

i tell ya honey they aint fucking about

i see good and bad yet i’m not even handed

i rush in an angel with no brains

i pick up my paintbrush and apply the lacquer to a world

worlds of songs collide within the chasm of my second

a violin dreams its themes of loss in my seemingly endless crane-eon

i am the weirdest cat yet straight as a dice or snakes eyes twice

i am a search for my inklings all escaped from my old head

art is my little black cat asleep on a mat

but inside he dreams of a picasso mouse with gaughin tongue

he thinks to me : i,  your familiar spirit ..what shall i do?

i must be madder still the day replies in blue cerulean blue

the day will say something like goodbye in its way

in its way are the dead who will not flinch or pray

in its way are the peace freak soldiering on

i am the vessel of emptiness and satisfaction

i reflect echoes of everything we ever said

i am adam in the sea of rivers who can see eve

i am understanding yet you stand over me

i have given you nothing …nothing you didnt need

i am not unique each time i peek theres another me

each time i peak i pick up my pastel and seek art

look i make it look easy

white for winter and old mans beard

green for jealousy and pacific ocean

yellow for gold for saint stevens halo and aurora home low

scarlet for fever and daughter and sunset on water

black because everything comes out of the dark

grey for matter and mind over matter

blue for my eyes my skies

and the day everybody dies

    There was a poem
    I left it on my page
    if you want to avail
    yourself of it
    I mean my page not my wall
    it’s there for all
    if necessary.
    (What an irony!)
    Well, I must get on with the day
    I would love to stop and play
    with pastel pinks
    methinks too of fruit pastilles
    but I’m just going round in wheels
    I tire some
    try to be true to you know who
    but what’s the point?
    the point is to ask questions
    as you say
    a lot to do
    to make it to you know where
    have to stop this natter
    and get in touch with my grey matter
    for that matter.
    Pray I may see you
    sooner or latter.
    I do intend to
    so pray too to eventuate.

    I like that photo where it looks like you’re sneezing out a demonic monster from hell. Or is it an elephant? Another person might think that. Sort of a rorschach test of nasal expectorant, that photo. Very trendy in these occluded times.

    And I tell them neither is the Heavenly Father.
    If my tears of grief can bring about a torrent of water in 2011 in the area doing harm. Then what wil my anger bring about as my tolerance wanes and I continue to witness the atrocities and oppression against the Australian people.

    a blank canvas there must be
    to capture the thoughts and the pleas
    of the heart so that it may be redeemed
    and sanctified…carried back to Infinity
    where the ancients are taught even by Elohim
    and drops of brilliant paint drip and slip through the seams
    resting on the heads of the chosen artists…even the time being

    I love the “evil koala” thing.
    I remember reading Scott Alexander-King’s book “Animal Dreaming” and seeing the koala with red eyes on the cover and thinking,does he know how evil that thing looks ?

    An introverted band, not quite the intellectual types to be able to digress on books and philosophy for so long, not quite the rock n rollers to engage in beer and blonde bombshells talk.
    Nineties’ clumsy decoration mixing dusty thick carpets and heavy curtains with leather and piccoli flowers and fake Louis XV furniture in overpolished dark chocolate brown wood. No personality and a weird take on luxury.
    In a latin room with a Whitney Houston poster, the perplex media trying to figure out The Church’s apparent lack of focus as well as other marketing notions that would soon ruin the artistic experience for almost everyone except for the sickeningly resilient and strong.
    The never finished documentary
    delivers the rarest view from inside a band, bandleader’s hands and eyes behind the camera. What we often see is the fans’ side or some serious, committed to “the truth” filmmaker’s side. The view of fans approaching to greet and throw (deeply felt and intended) flattery at a band leader is quite terrorizing. All of them little monsters trying to take a bite out of something that was already entirely offered onstage. And how exhausting to have to explain yourself all the time, to be the filter of what your very self do.
    Here’s some raw footage of a directionless band (in commercial terms) saying hi to all the people who were selling it.
    The conflict between being a jerk and a genius.
    The solitude implied in carrying your own disturbed and disturbing message to far too many people.
    The anti-glamour of being yourself and not some sort of impostor who knows how to sit and how to say what everybody wants to hear.
    The supremacy of music.
    The disenchantment of 35 year old people who already know too much about life’s ups and downs to care about being great besides having already said goodbye to youth.
    The mythic and mythic-less The Church buried in some mouldy VHS past, buzzing and fading after the 80s era.
    My youth buried forever.
    What does come after the credits?

      We know you know, but I’d love to know who wrote this!

      Your Friend in Pennsylvania
      (Now in Cocoa Beach)

      p.s. I am remorseful to be one of the offenders who offered my sincere flattery. Seeing this point of view, I cringe at my heavy handed gaffe and wonder how much of my life has been devoted to oblivious faux pas? If there were only a do over for life. So very sorry, really.

    A depiction of your soul in threat of being snatched by an evil spirit manifested in its evil koala form? Shapeshifter?
    Your soul is now protected.
    You’re welcome.

    I prayed last nite or in the wee hours of the morning, that whoever keeps inflicting this ongoing extremity of pain to my person that God would lock them up in the place He has prepared for them and throw Away the key. Tolerance and Resilience bring about different outcomes. For if it is anothers pain I am experiencing no one should have to endure that.

      A while ago, a friend emailed me this adorable little parable re same…
      Think it was his own composition… We’d been playing around with the same thought back/forth. Some day
      soon I’ll try finding the email and when appropriate again, copy it into a reply… His thoughts intrigue into wonder about this same… Fascinating resolve within his take … God is not vengeful, not ever… And for good reason too

    How are you faring then sk? You looked a bit feverish in a melbourne video I saw, although that was incidental. The performance was still great 🙂

    Dear Stevemeister Central,

    Just found out my beautiful Wife is pregnant 3 days ago and it’s the first time for us both. Got a father figure question or any advice you wanna give to us or which songs of yours can I include into a compilation of babyhood or motherhood for my wife or myself for singlong tunes cd compilation (SK or Anyone?)…

    Also do you recommend any albums for the little one for bedtime? Heck, also can you or do you still sponsor or tailor any songs and how much would they cost? I’m not trying to be a joker here, I’m serious man!

    Sorry if I’m coming across strange but I’m trying not to. If anyone is reading this and knows my profile on Facebook do not post anything yet (please) because we’re keeping it a secret for close family & friends.

    Long Live The Music!

    This one was quite brilliant indeed. But I am fawning again, aghhh…

    Your friend in Pennsylvania*
    (Now in Cocoa Beach)

    *For many years, license plates in Pennsylvania brandished the state motto: “You’ve got a friend in Pennsylvania” That would be me, just in case anyone was wondering. Now on the other hand, the Florida state motto is “In God We Trust” (not too original, seeing as that is also the US national motto, but anyway). Can’t help with that one, I’m afraid.
