Lots of Luck
By: Scott Thomas Outlar

Eternal optimism
with a subtle note
of sorrow

Obsession with smiling
while fans spin chaotic

Leaves flung
to the far side
of autumn

Keep chasing that wish
back to soil

(here is a kiss for all of your fault lines
here is a bite for your perfect mistakes)

Dance on cue in heavy traffic to grungy cuts
bless me with courage in the silence between crashes

I would beg
for one more
synchronistic flash
of assurance
to escape
from the groaning sky

or a sign
that gods are laughing
heartily
behind the scenes
with each
toss of the dice
