Chris Reid Ford graduated from the University of Michigan in 1975 with a B.A. degree in Geography and a Hopwood Award in poetry. Rather than wasting his talents on map-making or poetry, however, he went on to become a talented computer programmer. Chris retired from writing programs in 2015 and began wasting his time on writing poems again. Chris lives with his wife Dawn in Arizona. They have four dogs and one very important horse named Sky.
Is there any possibility for healing during these days of raucous division and anger? Yes, by reading a book of poems. Doing so will take your mind off of current events and allow you to calm down. By the time the Antichrist appears at the end of the book, you will look at these times we're in now and marvel at how calm and peaceful they are.
