Project Update: Shattering and Bricolage Complete

So, buoyed by the excitement of working on Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Mayan Poetry, I actually wrapped up my volume of original poetry before the short story collection. Shattering and Bricolage is now in front of an editor; we’ll see whether it gets picked up.
