    A 2015 short collection of minimalist chant like poems.You can imagine them being recited around a fire orat a ceremony The shields signify in part, the violenceand suffering that were the lot of many Native Americans.The shards of what remains, the stitches of connectinglives back together and then, come the songs A brief,but sure pleasure.

    The book is matrix like, with the seven poems within each section as described in the title linking crosswise Each SHIELD undergoes erasure to become a SHARD, then STITCHES The SONGS are then in dialogue with the fading shields.In short, time erodes our best convictions, and history is told in songs Really liked it conceptually, as well as viscerally.
