Nomad of Salt and Hard Water
This second edition of nomad of salt and hard water is evidence of how language that is fixed, as in a traditional publication, or unmoored, as in this new and revised edition, is made up of malleable meaning. Over time our relationship to language changes. While Cynthia Dewi Oka's thematic concernsdisplacement and exile, the weight of identity and its inevitable fragmentation, and what she eloquently calls difficult beautyremain, her language needs have shifted, and the resulting book is both ambitious and seemingly effortless. Because of course poems can adapt.
