The Last Gate Out Of Autumn

Shawn Blevins Art, Featured Leave a Comment

It’s winter. All your cares are dead, like the leaves that have fallen upon your dampened head. When the gates are open do you go out riding? When the gates are closed do you continue hiding? Who’s to say the day is dark at six? When the lights are out before dinner, we still play like kids.

Dirty Dreams

Shawn Blevins Art Leave a Comment

Dirty Dreams I awake, in a story where I am not the narrator. Just an actor in a commercial, I am compelled to be compelled. Each filthy action is a toy in the hands of ghosts. The roads all intersect in this hive of shadows, a divine spark removed with each turn, that leads to an American dream.
