MFA Greensboro Faculty David Roderick Interviewed on Memoriousmag’s Blog

Memorious staff member Laura van den Berg speaks with contributor David Roderick in these week’s contributor interview:

Your poems 35 Miller Drive and As When Drought Imagines Fire appear in Memorious 13. Can you tell us a little about how the poems came to be?

I can’t remember many specifics. Since my first book didn’t include any love poetry, “35 Miller Drive” and “As When Drought Imagines Fire” were attempts at writing within that tradition. They’re not conventional love poems. In fact, they’re pretty warped. Both endings of the poems, if I recall correctly, were lines I culled from old notebooks. I’d wanted to use those lines for a long time.
