Writer Highlight Featuring: H Paul Goodwin



I long for the raised voice the howl of rage or love

at least I used to because
the howl’s now barely
a whisper and the rage
passed away last September
from gout and old age
and it would appear
no coroner is called
for a death caused by boredom
and sheer lack of thought
no obituary is penned
for a means to an end
the howl’s sister is here though
the aunt of can’t
she’s a lazy-eyed sniper
taking potshots over hotpots and
flicking hot oil in your face
now i look for the chance
to raise my voice in anger or love
and throw back my head and shout but
nothing comes out
