Confluences of Solitude: Poetry
Lakota poet Kurt Schweigman (Oglala/Sicangu) was born and raised in Rapid City, South Dakota. His new collection of poetry Confluences of Solitude (Mitote Press, 2023) covers mostly Native American narrative themes that range from his upbringing in South Dakota to his current home in the Bay Area of California, as well as experiences of Baja Sur, Mexico. National and international award-winning poet and writer Jimmy Santiago Baca gave accolade for Confluences of Solitude, remarking that Kurt’s poems and prose are, “Boisterous as rapids after rainfall, subversive and tactful, here's a poetry raised on fire and ice, love and loathing, sorrow and quiet joy. It bursts upon the reader like a wave of wind that unsettles our assumptions.”
