\ Vi-zə-bəl \ \ Teks-chərs \ (Visible Textures), a chapbook of approximately 25 poems, uses digital tools to contrast an 1854 Indian Reservation map of the Kansas-Nebraska Territory with a 2013 highway map of Kansas. The poems are inspired by methodologies familiar in digital humanities and geography disciplines. Using GPS (global positioning software) technologies, I explore the public histories of Kansas and the iconic Santa Fe Trail. These poems about memory and migration are in conversation with public histories and the American imagination about the frontier. I elected to publish with Mammoth Publications, a small, Indigenous. And highly selective press which has published many decorated authors, including Xanath Caraza winner of the 2015 International Poetry Award. The press releases 3 to 5 publications a year. The chapbook was released in April 2015.
