Howie Good


I like the way it sounds
like a splash of bells,

and a giant stumbling heart,
and the prayerful name

of the saint of vagrants.
And I like what it means,

something added ­
Sorry, or Love you,

or tomorrow.


Howie Good, a journalism professor at the State University of New York at New Paltz, is the author of the poetry collection, Lovesick (2009). His second full-length collection, Heart With a Dirty Windshield, will be published by BeWrite Books.
