At the Museum of Celebrity Authors • Howie Good

Here’s the empty room that lived inside him. Here’s the key he used to lock it. Here’s the black moon that burned in her window. Here’s the leaf she heard vibrating all night. Here’s the TV he kept as a pet. Here’s the bottom-shelf booze he fed it. Here’s the elusive word that popped & whistled through her dreams. Here’s the twisted sheets in which she woke up choking. Here’s the trigger he pulled with his big toe. Here’s the fragment of Idaho the police dug out of the wall.
