What happens when, in mid-life, a marriage breaks apart and a woman’s home empties of its familiar rituals, and energy patterns, and grids of faith and promise? The poems in Ronna Bloom’s fourth collection, Permiso, follow an ancient trajectory, of psychic displacement, of questions having to do with personal failure, of responsibility, yes, and of an emerging, craning desire, of a search, begun anew, for an Other who just might be Self.
