a truly unique collaboration

of poet Michael C Ford

and photographer Rose Albano Risso
















there is an entity both nocturnal
and abusive
about a lady in Lathrop:
whose incredible cognition includes
the manner in which she observes
before she serves one of
society’s victims

the remains
of a drowned bird floating on
Comanche Lake: and how

black-crowned night herons,
luxuriate in interludes
of the disenchanted
