On Getting Close And Casting Out

Scott Thomas Outlar


 The only way to kill paranoia is to embrace it


birds and leaves fill the trees

but only one will be staying the season


If God is always watching you might as well dance


promises and judgments bundled in the deal

and some will save

and some will scorn

and some will never

scab over


This world sold out long before we were born


baubles and trinkets and platinum facelifts

but I would gladly carry

both bags under these eyes

for what they have seen

for what they have shed

for what they have

wept out in blood

and fire


The only way to kiss paranoia is with the tongue
