Scott Thomas Outlar- Two Poems

For Some
For some there is love
like a fire
through the night…burning unquenchable

For some the love is a flood

For some it is simple…
For some it is pure…
For some it is right…
For some it is even holy…

For others it is nonexistent...

Still Birth
In the end
all that matters
is the final poem
that pours forth
from the last lips
left living on earth
as the black smog

It matters not
that no one will survive to read the words.

It matters only
that they were written,
that they were felt,
that they were experienced,
that they were born…

Scott Thomas Outlar was almost there...and then the illusion broke and reality set in. His chapbook "A Black Wave Cometh" will be out in April through Dink Press. More of his words can be read at
