Issue 2: Howie Good


I hadn’t really noticed before
that crows have black beaks.

Of course,

from the perspective of wild birds,
man is the great mistake.

I flicked away my cigarette
and went back up.

Where was your mother born?
the other people waiting

wanted to know.
As always, I could hear

the false friendliness in my voice.
She was dying across the hall –

like wind and rain through the magnolias.

--Howie Good
