James D. Casey IV

Obdurate Wanderers – A Poem by James D. Casey IV

Obdurate Wanderers

The last shadow puppets
Killing time
Riding goodbye horses
Made of glass

Chasing dreams
Dead and buried
Along the river of
Lucidity
Listening to nature’s
Ambient song
So beautiful
Lulling wandering souls

The smell of sulfur
Giving sneak peak analysis
Into next days
That may never arrive

Unchained minds
Ignoring false alarm prayers
Knowing
The chandelier sky is
Infinite

They ride their horses
Into the heavens
Becoming high valley drifters

Looking down
With love
Adoration and
Sadness
Upon the world’s
Obdurate wanderers

Advaitic Terra Firma – A Poem by James D. Casey IV

Advaitic Terra Firma

The universe
Early in the planning stage
A silent nuclear philosophy
Poorly translated

Made
Of celestial bones
Cloaked in cobra skin and
Sparkling prophecy
Proffered

Brand new cult nightmare

Untold truths
In liquid sound
Breeding strange
Tiny monsters

Asleep inside the deep

Advaitic terra firma
In various phases of
Unfathomable intelligence
Dreaming of the words to use

Electric worry censorship and
Godless waiting games
Make up the duality
Of time
Here
