Printing lines from my poem, “Ladder,” on her father’s medical slides from Grace Hospital in Detroit, Ruth Bardenstein made three tiny glass slide and specimen books housed in a clinical case, called Vitreous Vaccine. The full poem is in my first book, Musca Domestica. The slides show specimens of bone marrow.
