Chapbook Genius: Howie Good

Current Issue:
Howie Good, Love Surrounds You Like a Posse in Bulletproof Vests [read] [print]

With twelve chapbooks already, Howie Good is out dropping jaws overtime. And he makes it seem easy, with lines like these, from "Sign":

How the crocuses
bustle about –

dumpy cafeteria ladies
in blue hairnets

I love the switch there, from "lovely garden"-type poetry to the ouch of "dumpy." Howie Good does a lot with just enough.

Publishing Genius is pleased to present 18 quiet, quickchange poems that comprise his latest collection, LOVE SURROUNDS YOU LIKE A POSSE IN BULLETPROOF VESTS. With this addition to Howie's goodness, I read to enjoy the care of poetry.
