" the storm streamed into his veins and a dark electricity crackled in his voice"

mama got the white hippy moses blues again

got the serpent can’t get the staff

down where the bull rushes to escape the bolt

yet i walk in this shadow approaching a fault

a fissure of men oh what black chasm

i tell you on the edge of eternal orgasm

i see you over there all implication

winter has spiked the cliffs and shot black stuff in

oh i shudder although i’m still

oh i scream although i’m silent

oh i fly although i’m earthbound

gods energy uh huh gimme a fix

god don’t keep it to yourself

my head is an anchor deep in the sea

i’m drowning my soul that crawls to be free

with one blast comes anger

with one blast comes rage

with one blast comes malice

from some long past age

the war locks himself inside himself

yes the ocean cocooning all within its atmosphere

in dreams i wriggle through these lives

desperate for my reward hanging out for that hit

high on this hill i was ready for it

the valley seems distant and fading a bit

its funny i can’t remember any of it

just as its beginning i had to quit

pull on a head none of em fit

pull on protection from over the pit


see me tomorrow when my bones knit

    Small steps Kilbey , small steps! I don’t have to put you in the right direction , you knew all along.
    Second thought for the day. The Black Keys new song “Cold on the ceiling” opening bars , sounds like David Bowie’s “Gene Genie” Yes , No ????

    Hey man, you are looking for the religious high that no drug can give you…religious ecstasy in the true meaning of the word. I gave up the booze for the natural spiritual high 3 years ago and it worked. I am now high on life and spirituality. Your poetry of late indicates you are at a point on the spiritual journey where you want to be sure that God is connected to you, and with you, totally and for eternity…the good old ‘covenant’ relationship. You can be assured of this from the Jesus perspective by nature of baptism. An indelible promise and gift. have you been baptised, man? If not…explore it…with a progressive Christian spiritual guide, and not some judgmental fake. You are treasure in an earthen vessel, Steve. Your speech at the Arias showed a man on a spiritual high.

      prescriptions without a full history of ones enlightened path can lead to banging into a harsh reality.

    Indifferent to other’s pain
    Healers of others infirmities
    Paradox of Creation
    Both high art and monster
    Viral infection on earth’s surface
    Breath of God.

    We hang our hopes
    On its fragile branches
    Cover our lives in its tender leaves
    Harvest the sap
    Precious blood
    And oozing liquor of life
    We drink the refined
    And defined
    And distilled
    And wait expectantly…

    I’m intrigued by the concept of an eternal orgasm. I think you should develop that idea further. 🙂

    I tripped the great big blue beyond for so long…
    I was invincible so I was told and I was taught…
    I stare now into a dirty mirror trying to find what’s left of me…
    I am an empty shell, lost nearly 30 pounds, of my former self…
    I seeked out other medicine men for sage advise to find a cure…
    I heard the words I thought I would never hear…
    I am engulfed in a spinning existence of pain, depression, and ruthless insomnia…
    I shake with pain and try to cry myself to sleep for some peace…
    I once soared thru the skies above but now I am stuck on the ground…
    I heard the words no one wants to hear…
    I am told my physical degeneration is the thorns that wrap my head…
    I am told my head is dancing alone to a song that I can only hear…
    I was told that my conditions are remarkable, unseen by many…
    I am asked how I feel often only to be ignored and catalogued away…
    I am a father of two with a beautiful bride that time continues to wash me away…
    I would wish this all upon someone else but I am not a selfish man…
    I forgot how to laugh and for some time now, cannot even stand…
    I rolled the dice and took another chance only to be slammed down again…
    I find myself twisted upside down and my insides falling out…
    I struggle to eat for food is now what I am told I need …
    I have fliiped my body clock over and darkness is all that I see…
    I envy all those whos health is always at ease…
    I triumphed over evil to only find myself lost and empty…
    I question my sickness only to be told with no empathy…
    People just suffer, unfortunately for me it is now
    all that I am allows to see…
    Sleep has become my distant memory…
    I simply forgot the person who once who lived inside of

      …and it’s one two three – look up there’s a crepuscular – hey heaven you got anymore? already counted this one, it comes to four…

      and it’s five six seven open those pearly gates…

      don’t ask me it’s not my plan, next stop is where I stand (get back ye sinners… oops! – wrong mountain)

      – well there aint no time to wonder why; whoopee – we’re all getting high

      (moses singing… after the blues have gone away – and then he continued: “hmm – who is that nice woman who’s always singing …and ice cream castles in the air…? now, I’m hungry.”)

    I asked a young radiographer at work the other day, who I know was brought up in a strict Catholic indoctrination, whether he really believed that Noah’s arc, the talking snake, parting seas etc, really happened. He laughed and said that no, he believes that they are only old stories, to instruct. He believes in evolution, but incorporates God into the beginning of time. I was moved. It gave me a new appreciation of religion. Maybe it can be incorporated into science. For the moment, I still believe in karma xxx

    my head is an anchor deep in the sea

    “i’m drowning my soul that crawls to be free
    with one blast comes anger
    with one blast comes rage
    with one blast comes malice
    from some long past age”

    I’ve been so spiritually balanced and good-natured lately that I’ve been simply joyous…and then, all it takes is one Monday to make me snap…really tho – I get stuck late at work having to help people do shit that took me ONE DAY to master, that they are STILL incapable of absorbing after SIX WEEKS..REALLY?! Don’t try to THINK or anything, you might freakin’ hurt yourself!!! Of course, they are always 100% punctual and organized for their disgusting fast food meat n’ grease LUNCHES! Overheard today: “I’m late for my lunch, I’ll have to call you back.” REALLY?!! These are U.N. guys who are traveling to nations where people don’t have the freakin’ luxury of eating AT ALL, and the 300lb. hog woman from hell (with an IQ to match) has to have her 19 slime tacos and burritos at her desk and gag me half to death…!!

    F**K ME RUNNIN’!!

    Why, oh why, Lord??

    I hate rage. Rage pisses me off!! Why, I oughta….

    Must read Arbor poem again. Must. Chill.
