Howie Good

Ode to Selfies

The star-
shaped holes
and undulated

and seemed
to encourage selfies,

but as I lifted
my phone,
I saw my face
into many tiny,
incomplete truths,

little details
like clues
that it’s spring, 

a car found
on a suicide bridge,
still running.

Howie Good will give anything in this God-almighty world if you’ll just let him follow you down.
