MY AUTHOR PHOTO by Howie Good

Like a lace-
bordered

handkerchief
used to mop

up fires,
a gold

Ecuadorian
doubloon

the sun
has begun

to melt,
a look that says,

If anyone
finds a key

to a Volkswagen,
please

let me know.

HOWIE GOOD is the author of a full-length poetry collection, Lovesick, and 21 print and digital poetry chapbooks, including most recently, Hello, Darkness, available from Deadly Chaps.
