Chewing The Dream

Chewing The Dream

written by: James Dennis Casey IV



I followed his soul
to the other side
still can’t stand
the taste

unicorn ashes
regretful things

chewing the dream
and over

seeking answers
for questions lost
to this vile carnival
long ago

in the flavor
that lingers
upon my tongue
