Palominos Near Tuba City: New & Selected Poems
Author: Denise Sweet
Publisher: Holy Cow! Press (2018)
Palominos Near Tuba City is a selection of new and previously published poems from a long and distinguished career. These forty poems take us on a rich and fascinating journey, transporting us through history on memory's voices, singing a new vision of the familiar. Though her subjects vary from a visit to the mission at White Earth to parking a car, Sweet brings freshness to each. The poems leave markers where they have touched us, places we will return to to remember the startling beauty of a phrase, the quiet wisdom of a story, the good humor of our poet companion. She carries us to the brink of discovery; her words push us over.
