Dinah Roma, Naming the Ruins – Vagabond Press

Dinah Roma, Naming the Ruins
Vagabond Press 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. Dinah Roma in Axon Journal on writing Naming the Ruins. "Dinah Roma's poetry appears to intone as if emerging from a deep well of consciousness, as a kind of universal bell ringing out and bearing witness to emotion, emotion which is paradoxically fleeting in nature but timeless in effect. Plumwood Mountain Review "Yes, Roma is a Philippine poet. She writes about her specific culture, its world and worldview-that she expands beyond this specificity, beyond the white spaces around her spare lines, beyond the page, the book, and into the air that we breathe. Roma writes from the voices of her own home. And yet these voices can come alive in our own mouths: other breaths suddenly in our breath. Mascara Literary Review "In Naming the Ruins, Dinah Roma keens. Dinah Roma has crafted 'oracles out of love.' Oracles of the body: from its 'undulations of desire' to its 'last labor'-and our own bodies are co-opted into this oracle making. Into retrieving after loss 'The phantom of a limb. The mind/haunting the flesh as when the arm/reaches for what was once there.' Into being, as when the leaf's 'blade shapes what surrounds it,/suspended and held/by what renders it a leaf.' Because word shaman that she is, this poet knows, 'We are bodies/Circling into radiance unimpeded,/into that trail of sudden tremor…' It is this 'sudden tremor' of consciousness after each poem that astounds-that frees our bodies like 'each syllable freed for what it is.' And with such tenderness, such grace. Merlinda Bobis Dinah Roma is the author of two award-winning poetry collections, A Feast of Origins (UST, 2004) and Geographies of Light (UST, 2011). She teaches with the De La Salle University's Department of Literature (Manila). Her most recent collection of poetry Naming the Ruins (Vagabond Press, 2014) will be launched in May 2014 in Sydney.
