Back to Normal Poetry by Howie Good

1 Have you ever seen the lining of a potato bug’s wings? Like the opening of the season for executions. 2 All painting is piracy, a white forehead containing the memory of obscure objects in your parents’ medicine cabinet. 3 You start to make a list of all the things night knows, but stop at a better word for fucking.
