Issue 1: Howie Good

Dog Is God Spelled Backwards

Waiting for the dog to finish,
I think of dead friends,
their unsent e-mails, their caved-
in hearts

The shadows under the trees
are bearded Hasids in long black coats
swaying during evening prayers.

I go back inside. The news is on.
It’s all tumors and acronyms.

She’s studying the calendar magnet
on the fridge. What about April,
she says, if March is no good?

--Howie Good
