Silver City author Beate Sigriddaughter’s new collection of prose poems, Kaleidoscope, has just been published by Cholla Needles and is available on Amazon.com.
Kaleidoscope is a procession of shifting visions, sometimes dazzling, oftentimes moody, and always unpredictable. The poems, written in third person, are reflections of an unnamed woman on abstract themes that quickly get anchored in tangible reality and just as quickly revert back to enigmatic impressions. Toggling between anguish and delight, insecurity and confidence, these poems speak to much of the current human condition as experienced on the defenseless personal level.
Sigriddaughter will read from Kaleidoscope on July 17, 2021, 2:00-3:30 at the Tranquilbuzz Coffee House, 300 N. Arizona Street, Silver City. Her reading will be followed by open mic. The July 17 reading is the first of a monthly Saturday afternoon poetry program, “Open Circle–Poetry at the Buzz,” orchestrated by former Silver City and Grant County poet laureate Elise Stuart.
