about

A long poem that limns the incremental mourning of living with a person who has frontotemporal dementia. Selah, from Psalms and Habakkuk -- to praise, to lift up, to weigh in the balances, to pause, or a purely musical notation. Biblical scholars debate the exact meaning. Selah, Nora Gould's second poetry collection, is a sequence of fragments written in dialogue with all of these meanings. Stitched together, these fragments form a poem that runs from the ranch land of Alberta into the heart of a shared house and a shared life. Selah is about living with a husband recently diagnosed with dementia; it's about the looking back and the imagining forward, about saying what cannot be said -- the wayfaring bush and its shadow. It's about finding a way through all this: "The palette darker than I’d planned," yes, but also shot through with humour and care, crafted with both frankness and decorum.
