Ross Bender's third collection of poetry, dedicated in loving memory to Ross Thomas Bender (1929-2011).

"taking out the body" "death rattle" "that short white hearse again" are among Bender's reflections on the death of his father.

Includes poems from visits to Japan, including "At Iwashimizu", "O Tokyo you're so fab!" and "meditation on a toilet in Hiroshima".

As the Poet Laureate of Clark Park in West Philadelphia, Bender deals with scenes familiar to University City villagers, although with a surreal flare -- "playing chess with a psychopath", "shredding day on Baltimore Avenue", and "Clark Park, early June".
