Authors Talk: David Moody

David MoodyToday we are pleased to feature poet David Moody as our Authors Talk series contributor. David discusses his poem, “Afterbirth,” and the role his mother’s career as a nurse played in his work.

Of all of the themes surrounding the poem, he says that the “passing on of family knowledge” is at its core. He then talks about the shifts between the language of food preparation and surgery, and the shifts between the professional and the personal in his mother’s life. David concludes by discussing the dual power wielded by the solitary lines in “Afterbirth.”

David’s poem, “Afterbirth,” can be read and heard in Issue 19 of Superstition Review.
