Exposes Truth by James Dennis Casey IV

Exposes Truth

She licks the plaque
From a dead man’s teeth
Rich and curious the taste

She feels his suffering
Takes his pain
In exchange for answers

Gentle and undeceiving
His lingering soul
Whispers of things
Unknown to the living

The suckling of beasts
Footprints of gods


The perishing sun
Flesh houses
Good and evil
As one

This kiss
So putrid
Exposes truth
