Seed Wheel is a lyric grown from the taut, ardent beauty of simple speech that seeks a way through the broken places in the ground of our imagination. The past and the present abide in these poems, as intimate as breath: migrations and altars, silence and wonderment, miseries and mysteries, and the stubborn cargo of our collective and personal histories. Here is the testimony of ancestors—and of the land itself—moments outside of time in which the living and the dead dwell in common, listening to the blow of northern wind. In a world drenched in harm and limbic quarrel, these poems testify to the power of language to reach across imposing and imposed boundaries, enter the public square, and sing.
