Snowflakes (Howie Good)

Posted on January 10, 2011 by in Heightened Talk


I find an old shopping list from last summer

crumpled in the back pocket of my jeans.


If I let myself, I could fall in love

with a girl with long bangs who gets

snowflakes airbrushed on her nails.


I keep five phone numbers in my head.

None of them is hers.


The first thing on the list is red peaches.
