A LYRICAL AND, AT TIMES, CHALLENGING first collection that settles, in a satisfying stream of synchronicity, into a 3-4-5-6 pattern. There are three broad categories. Four of the poems are inspired by shapeshifting the poet’s shamanic world view and include a whirlwind tour of nations where shamanic practices and beliefs remain deeply baked into their underlying structures. Five poems are autobiographical in nature, predominantly about pain and death; and there are six flights of pure playfulness that dance, and freeze, and burn to the sounds of a digeridoo. Some of these works have previously appeared in October Hill Magazine, The Oldie, and on PoetsOnline.org.
