Survivor of The Strange

written by: James Dennis Casey IV



the new Lizard King
no one left to blame
on the level

this is how it’s done

find your tribe
find your weird

enhance it
dedicate yourself
to something

what kind of trip
are you on tonight

not about
to forget

a new day
a new design

survivor of the strange
long nights
tricking death
into being friends
letting my heart
beat another day
