R L SWIHART
Another Step toward the Invisible (via Shutterfly)
8 × 8, hardcover, 20 pages, Modern Black (as though Baudelaire were driving the ferry): The perfect Chillon would be shot from the lake. His is from the parking lot. He waited for the train to pass before he snapped the photo Madonna Sasso—looking like a cripple about to step off a curb Three hoary peaks and a lap-dancing cloud. Man's tracks cascading down (first a trickle then a flood) Closer view of Locarno (dolldom and two sleepy giants before a mirror) Todtnauberg: the only photo in which they appear as a couple. They had a corner seat at Waldblick

KATHLEEN O'HARA PODZIMEK Daddy
You held my body, teaching me words, pictures, and rhymes, "Did you ever think you'd see me like this?" You were confident, dominant, you were larger-than-life "Did you ever think you'd see me like this?" When Mom died, you grew smaller, sadder, I saw it in your eyes, felt it in your shoulders, "Did you ever think you'd see me like this?" You couldn't walk, couldn't hear, You asked, "Did you ever think you'd see me like this? "No," I lied. "I never thought I'd see you like this." Death took you crying, I asked my husband, "Did you ever think you'd see me like this?" "No," he lied, "I never thought I'd see you like this."
