out of the box.
out of the ordinary.
out of this world.
est. Sept. 2020
Welcome to Outlander. We are a digital zine highlighting the awkward, the eccentric, and the weirdly beautiful.
“Love” from Bensound
In a glade of lush, green warmth, there grows a strawberry bush…
it’s i08: strawberry!
Every morning is the same.
To Inhabit Emptiness
A year after you die,
She told him she was struggling to sleep,
There is one bus that takes you into the village
He sat alone between the salt and pepper shakers.
The streetlights move like blinking eyes.
Just after dawn seeps into the horizon,
just the carcass not the soul, that’s all that moves today.
tender is the heart that aches past the midnight hour;
Curb finances exchange for florets.
Absence of the Unethical Return
I observe the swoon and swaddle,
Sink or Sail
Sinking sand, slipping I slide into a suffocating hug.
Unfortunately for me, I have mastered the art of avoidance.
Every winter I fall into a similar pattern.
Welcome to the USA
Welcome to a day in the life of an American.
To All the Women Who Taught Me To Love…
I sat down at the computer to write an angry piece about the state of the world.
Talking to Stranger
Talking to strangers is a game I fail at.
On Leaving Home
By the time these words pour out into the world,
What excites you?
Do you remember those moments when we’d sit on swings and pretend we were flying?
What inspires you?
Take us somewhere.
What makes you angry?
The fleeting joy of summer.
Blood and secrets spilled.
