Naming The Ruins
by Dinah Roma
Ruins fascinate. They invite us into a world of disunities, fragments, memory, time. They beckon us to imagine the invisible and whole. Dinah Roma’s third collection of poems ruminates on the guises of ruins in our encounter with everyday—how in the slow shedding of surfaces we inevitably excavate our deepest resources, from where we rise to an awareness of what renders us vulnerable and enduring, what allows us to trace and inhabit landscapes at once ineffable and sublime. A certain rhythm leads this movement in all the poems’ low, lilt, and lift to one that sings us into a new way of being.
