The Shadow Aspect

They found her
still holding the knife,
as there wasn’t
room in her head
for one thing more,
not even a small list
of natural remedies –
ginger for nausea,
plantain for colds,
rose hips for heartache.

Howie Good co-edits White Knuckle Press with Dale Wisely and has published quite a number of poems.
