Random Notes in a Book

weaving spiders
tread not here

doesn’t exist

Stoned stream of conscience
in outer space

gumbo titties

blood work
next month

bleeding organism
in technicolor

slap the shadows
until they pay up

owed more
for nothing done

heal them with fire

love from above

James D. Casey IV is the author of seven full-length collections of poetry: Metaphorically Esoteric, Dark Days Inside the Light While Drunk on Wine, Tin Foil Hats & Hadacol Coins, Owls in Hot Rods with Pink Elephants and Dead Bats, Isomorphic, Death & Love/Love & Death, and Unwritten Words That Slide Down The Wall. He is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Cajun Mutt Press.

James is a southern poet with roots in Louisiana & Mississippi, currently residing in Illinois with his beautiful Muse, the ghost of their retarded dog, and two black cats. Mr. Casey’s poetry touches on a wide range of topics including personal experiences, love, hate, religion, politics, dreams, addiction, sex, parallel dimensions, and many more.

His work has been published in print and online by several literary magazines and small press venues. Far too many to list without looking pretentious, and I don’t like to leave anyone out. You know who you are, thank y’all.

James spends most of his time writing, but also enjoys practicing magick, creating artwork, and cooking Cajun cuisine.
