In this new collection of poems i Weary Kingdom i DeLana R A Dameron maps a journey across emotional spiritual and geographic lines from the familiarity of the honeysuckle South to a new world or a new kingdom Harlem Her poems traverse the streets of this Black mecca with a careful eye cast toward the intimacies of the exterior Still as the poems move throughout the built environment they navigate matters of death love love loss and family against the backdrop of a city that has yet to become home Indeed what looms over this weary kingdom is a longing for the certainties of a lover s touch the summer s sun and the comforts of a promised land up North And as the poet longs so do readers Ultimately they grow aware of Utopia s fragility, DeLana R A Dameron searches for answers to spiritual quandaries in her first collection of poems How God Ends Us selected by Elizabeth Alexander as the fourth annual winner of the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize Dameron s poetry forms a lyrical conversation with an ominous and omnipotent deity one who controls all matters of the living earth including death and destruction The poet s acknowledgement of the breadth of this power under divine jurisdiction moves her by turns to anger grief celebration and even joy From personal to collective to imagined histories Dameron s poems explore essential perennial questions emblemized by natural disasters family struggles racism and the experiences of travel abroad Though she reaches for conclusions that cannot be unveiled her investigations exhibit the creative act of poetry as a source of consolation and resolution, A collaboration between the South Carolina Poetry Initiative and the University of South Carolina Press the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize is a celebration of accomplished and emerging poets linked together by their shared associations with the Palmetto State Published on the seventh anniversary of this award series Seven Strong features selections from the winning poets to date Susan Meyers Ray McManus Ed Madden DeLana R A Dameron Worthy Evans Jennifer R Pournelle and Julia Koets with an introduction by editor Kwame Dawes and a foreword by South Carolina poet laureate Marjory Wentworth
