tread not here
Stoned stream of conscience
in outer space
slap the shadows
until they pay up
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.
