    Louise Erdrich published these poems when I was three or four; reading them is not unlike a cradling to be held by a blood mouthed matriarch who would bless you and defend you That is what these poems do They hold you up to the dangerous light

    Louise Erdrich is such an important voice in American Literature mostly based on her novels This book of poems relatively early in her career is her fifth book Reading it now still brings feelings of the disturbing strangeness and spiritual feelings of everyday life I will admit that the short story Potchikoo's Life After Death was especially mesmerizing with its narrative structure like one growing from indigenous roots than European narratives In her poetry as well Erdrich challenges the everyday world of Christianity Snake of hard hours you are my poetryAccording to God your place is low under Adam's heel but as for mea woman shaped from a secondary bonewho cares if you wrap my shoulders?Who cares if you whisper? Who caresif the fruit is luscious? Your placeis at my earShe obviously speaks directly making this book of poems almost 30 years old worth picking up

    This collection of Erdrich’s poetry is taut and fraught in the best kind of way with the themes of religion communion and togetherness vs loneliness; she tears open catholic scenery to forge a new mythology weaving together her personal life indigenous imagery and rites of the church Her poem on Mary Magdalene is especially powerful and worth a dog ear

    Of Erdrich's books of poetry this one is my favorite One poem which begins I am sorry I ruined the oatmeal is a potent litany of apologies from what sounds like a woman being criticized for every little thing she does I enjoy her humility and understand her crippling love At times this collection brings to mind Sharon Olds and her poetry of family and love and sex and real real life Another poem reminds me of my favorite Edna St Vincent Millay when it begins It was not love No flowers or ripened figs were in his hands no words in his mouth A strange mixture between love is not all it is not meat nor drink nor slumber nor a roof against the rain and the wind driving south flattened your words against your speaking mouthThese connections are purely my own bringing my favorite ladies of the page together for a mental menage a trios

    Interesting collection of poetry Louise Erdrich is an Ojibwe author whose novels and poetry explore the intersection of her father's catholic faith and her native heritage I don't endorse her religious vision but the poems are entertaining There is also a prose story myth? about his death afterlife and reincarnation of Potchikoo I especially liked Potchickoo's discovery that white people hell is to be chained by the neck to the Sears Roebuck Catalog The story is wickedly funnyMy favorite poems in this volume are the most overtly religious Part one of this volume has poems that evoke Erdrich's Catholic heritage I especially liked Saint Clare and the seven part poem The Sacraments exploring the seven sacraments of the Catholic church of course redefined
