A meditation on sentimentality from the cradle to the grave, Silver Box is a prayer for words to adorn, cauterize and protect. Equal parts Natachee Momaday Gray and her many ghosts, the line is blurred and travels between multiple lifetimes. The poems seep and linger, await and return. Like milk, like ink, like smoke. It is an all-encompassing lineage, kept safe and cherished within the confines of one silver box; the sacred heart of remembrance.
About the Author
Natachee Momaday Gray is a New Mexican poet and artist whose work focuses on the melding of art and myth, ancestry and nostalgia, food and prayer, glamour, frivolity, and time. A native of Santa Fe, she has many artistic talents as a poet, hand fashioned bookmaker, fiction writer, Chanteuse, and film maker. In her uniquely creative voice, she draws on her Kiowa and Apache heritage to create compelling stories that transcend designation.
