The collection Collected Snow Globes consists of the voices of multiple narrators in conversation about elements of literature, narrative, history, art, and emotion over the span of sixty-nine poems. The narrators feature named voices such as a Coyote trickster figure, the Historian, the Archeologist, the Lost Brother, and a host of other lesser figures moving about the globe and time. Investigations by the narrators include visiting art museums, authors across the Modernist and post-modern spectrums, and geographical locales such as Lisbon, the American south, and Kentucky.
