Sunlight Crystal

By Scott Thomas Outlar

I wounded all my alibis

before fully forming


now the theory is dizzy

crash point of fever


shine where the clovers are smitten


gathering red leaves

for spells of caution


You told me every story

takes on a life of its own

when eager


now my mouth is dry cotton

thick fabric turn autumn


glow in the gown of soft feather


lining up the charge

for signs of contact
