James Dennis Casey IV



Damn Clown



My guardian angel

Drunk on whiskey

Dancing naked with the clown

That passed her the bottle


Inhibitions let loose

Sailing away

With the gentle breeze


I try hard

Really hard

To be a good man

But that damn clown

Always screws it up


So I take the bottle


And start a fire


I might as well join in the fun








Weep no More



Riding on a cloud

High above the world

So beautiful


Flowing along the line

Of her back


The one

Who taught me how to write


She passes in the sky

In rooted tangle


Only to give me

At last

When I am dead

Hope to return


I have seen her constellation

Dressed in green

Tailed like a rat

And then fall away


With me


Burning in secrets

Of nothing whatsoever

I shall see her again


Ended is what I have begun

Only to begin again

Show me

Weep no more
