It Doesn't Matter Where, It Only Matters Who

By Scott Thomas Outlar

Let's hit the road
and head west
for a while,
or turn the compass
due north
and set sail
for the great lakes.

Let's wake up each morning,
and talk about our dreams
before conquering the day.

Let's catch a plane
to Egypt,
land in the middle of nowhere,
and start walking through the desert,
guided by
the siren call of the Sphinx.

Let's write a romance novel
with our actions
in real time,
bringing all the words
we haven't even imagined yet
to life.

Let's take a trip
to the lushest jungle
and set up shop
in the trees,
or catch a cruise
to Italy
and lounge in the shade
by the sea.

Let's sit and feast
for five hours straight
while I drink deeply
from your lovely eyes,
and then stroll
through the park,
hand in hand,
chatting about this and that
until we've solved
every subject
under the sun.

Let's burn so bright
our hearts can't help
but remain aflame

Let's laugh so much
we begin to make music
with our smiles
