Hard Candy / Pitch Roll Yaw is a flip book of two poetry collections facing each other. It reads like a bare knuckle punch from beyond the grave. Hard Candy: Caregiving, Mourning, and Stage Light offers poems and prose on the eternal relationship of the poet and her mother. Pitch Roll Yaw is fourteen stations each beginning with a See, Saw poem -- Lanzillotto's one liners balanced by a fulcrum: comma, caesura, spondee, dash, or backslash, with quick shifts in weight and changes in meaning. Each station is unified by theme or form.
I almost remember / conversations we had / the rush of voice / loud break of your laughter / your willingness to extend the evening / to its max, but the words / the words don't fly back to me / The words are gone, black specks in the sky / on rooftops, gables, branches / quivering
