Winner of the Vassar Miller Prize in Poetry, 2014. In his debut collection, Jordan Windholz recasts devotional poetics and traces the line between faith and its loss. Other Psalms gives voice to the skeptic who yet sings to the silence that “swells with the noise of listening.” If faith is necessary, this collection suggests, it is necessary as material for its own unmaking. From “(psalm)”: part self, part song the psalm drags sense from absence the eclogue anticipates response verdant and vined, its verges overtake the tongue. . .
