5 * Dining

Blackened fish falling from the sky
hooked, plucked, sunk, fried
twisted rhythms of the cycle
one belly full and one filleted

Red wine pouring from eternal spring
stoppage theory has no sway
pleasure, passion, satiate the beast
mortal flesh is just the start

Sugar symphony is delivered nightly
star shine orchestra swallows the grace
no more niceties at the carving table
it’s lust come lately then crash into sleep

Publicity Pulse

News spreads like a wildfire
by word of mouth
throughout the internet
across the seas
over the airwaves
from one side of the world to the other

 Dose up on life
however you choose
I’ll use
wine, oxygen and stale memories
to spur evolution onward
Get to the point
before I’m distracted
You take
time, energy and money, money, money
out of my mouth
when I’m urging for a feast
Suck dry the passion
with those vampire fangs
I like them
in my skin, in my hair, to my veins
just to make sure I still feel.


Scott Thomas Outlar spends the hours flowing and fluxing with the waves of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over the existential nature of life. His words have appeared recently in venues such as Eunoia Review, Cultured Vultures, Novelmasters, Dissident Voice, and Dead Snakes. His debut chapbook “A Black Wave Cometh” will be released in April through Dink Press. More of Scott’s writing can be found at 17numa.wordpress.com.

A clear tone from Scott Thomas Outlar’s themes and self revelations
out leaping conventional wisdom.
