Poems By Scott Thomas Outlar




I prayed that your song

would inspire a word


or two


shadow of the moon, humming glow


half yours, half mine


tithing each smile

to the sand in your teeth


trying to meet

each person

wherever they are

on their own path

while never forgetting



recklessly we

crisscross and trample

the narrow lines between us


but sometimes we dance
