First Encounter Beach Revisited

A poem by Howie Good

devonport-waves-2-1514697.jpg

Late afternoon,

low tide,

a red dog

running

along

the shore

where

the Nauset

first encountered

the Pilgrims

scatters

clans

of gulls

while

its owner

futilely

calls it back.


Howie Good is recipient of the 2015 Press Americana Prize for Poetry for his forthcoming collection Dangerous Acts Starring Unstable Elements.
