Apes in The Garden, Dreaming

Apes in The Garden, Dreaming

written by: James Dennis Casey IV



a ghostly silhouette
visits them
in the form of a snake

throwing bones
speaking in symbols
on a mushroom monolith

far beyond


a dream
so familiar

against childlike

of what might have

when virtue
is on the line
