Every Everything ~ Howie Good

The needle goes in / never pausing to narrate / just like the 9-year-old at Joy Farm firing an Uzi / the pretty young maidens / eat a pear in the French manner / jamming a fork in the top / & cutting chunks from the sides / the ghostly traces of a past life / every day for three years / drawing new maps of hell / in the French manner  / intimately / with a scalpel / & he who says doesn’t know  / & she who knows doesn’t say / that once it goes in / the wolf in the heart never comes out
