Silver Bullets & Smiles on Fire

written by: James Dennis Casey IV



god’s hand

rain begins to fall

bells chime in
a masonic temple
grandfather’s past

roman pillars
an iron gate
secret rooms

déjà vu
energy stays
moving on

in tune
in time

silver bullets
& smiles
on fire

who are we
but a series
of forgotten
and false

when little is left
to the imagination
of a past

on a linear
with fingers
into parallel
