Poet Katie Ford's debut collection, Deposition , confronts God in a language as shifting and ecstatic as divine encounter This comes out of folklore. Invented because tenderness at times must be written in. There was a woman. There was a cross. But in fact they have hung him too high to be touched.--from "A Woman Wipes the Face of Jesus"
