The Collage Handbook by Howie Good

It isn’t the paste
that makes the collage 
or even paper 
from a wasp’s nest 
but a miniature heart 
buried in February 

scraps of Hebrew 
six million dollars 
in shredded bills 
a single thread of hair 
to clearly lead us 
through nasty stains

beneath a crow-
like bird that carries
an ominous egg

Howie Good's latest book of poetry is The Complete Absence of Twilight (2014) from MadHat Press. He co-edits White Knuckle Press with Dale Wisely, who does most of the real work.
