*This book comes with a Rd Klā album download by the same title, of sound art based in these poems.

(Also available on Amazon and iTunes.)
Praise for Allison Adelle Hedge Coke:"Beginning with her first collection, Dog Road Woman, Allison Hedge Coke announced herself as a poet of sound and image whose themes–Native American life and history, colonialism, the earth and its flora and fauna, labor and working-class issues, a fascination with science–would sustain her writings, both poetry and memoir. Streaming continues Hedge Coke's thematic journey while, at the same time, revealing to us a mature poet of imagery whose sonics have shifted toward a be-bop poetics in which rich, complex sound-patterns are essential to the collection's meaning-making and emotional impact." – World Literature Today
"These are the songs of righteous anger and utter beauty."- Joy Harjo
"When a book of poems contains the pleasure and adventure of a fine soundtrack it should be loudly celebrated. There are many ways to listen to Allison Adelle Hedge Coke's fine collection Streaming. The thing of it is, whether still on the page, or with an undercurrent of musicians and voice, the lyrics ring true. The poem always wins." – Cornelius Eady

From "Carcass":
Split skin stretched over marrowless cage,
encased dry tomb, like those strewn
through this loess reach, cradling past
ever present here, and now you come
walking riverside, bringing sensory thrill
into daylight much like this cervidae
culled morning each waking before
demise. We move this way, catching life
until death captures us, where we rot
into the same dust holding multitudes
before us, and welcoming those beyond.
