Praise for Psalm to Whom(e)"This dazzling variety of poems,
proems, and creative nonfiction takes the reader on both an outward and inward
pilgrimage from home to home. Driving, always driving, through sparse and
lush landscapes, the present moment and memory inextricably linked, Glancy
saturates her journey with Native wisdom and biblical story. She sews a
quilt, stitching together the stories and meditations into a vast network of
connections. It is more than masterful. It is a thrilling, electric
ride."--Jill Peláez Baumgaertner, Professor Emerita of English,
Wheaton College
"Diane Glancy explores new
modes of converging poetry and storytelling in Psalm to Whom(e), a
powerful and moving "investigational [re] imagining" of the road diary
completed in the midst of personal isolation and a global pandemic. "Driving is
a time of communion," the speaker submits, "[e]specially the roads that call
one to look at what one is inside. Often with devastating vision."
Glancy's record of solitary travel spans a multiplicity of indexical forms
quilted to unearth childhood memories, "feel the confines of the oppressive
past," and to p/robe Indigenous
futurity. The dedicated reader of innovative poetry will be hard-pressed to
encounter another book this year that quivers and pulsates with the same
capaciousness and vitality of beginner's mind. A bravura work by a truly great
poet."--Paolo Javier,
author of
True Account of Talking to the 7 in Sunnyside and
O.B.B. aka the Original Brown Boy
