9781936747672: Thought That Nature (Kathryn A. Morton Prize in Poetry)

In the middle of the night, when the fruit
is scariest. I hold my hand out

and feel your nibbling. Don't worry,
my eyes are still closed. I've only

peeked that once. The cold
that is your breath—these windows

of fog. If I were outside,
I'd read your name backward again and again.

Trey Moody is from San Antonio, Texas. He earned an MFA from Texas State University and a PhD from the University of Nebraska. He is the author of the chapbook How We Remake the World, co-written with Joshua Ware, and winner of the Slope Editions Chapbook Prize.

About the Author:

Trey Moody is from San Antonio, earned an MFA from Texas State University, and a PhD from the University of Nebraska. He is the author of several chapbooks, most recently, How We Remake the World, co-written with Joshua Ware and winner of the Slope Editions Chapbook Prize. His poems have appeared in Best New Poets 2009, Colorado Review, Denver Quarterly, Indiana Review, and Washington Square.

From Booklist:

Moody’s title pays tribute to Emily Dickinson’s poem, “I thought that nature was enough.” Winner of the Kathryn A. Morton Prize, this is an ambitious and smart first book, in which the poet uses pace and subtle reflections to consider the realities of climate change. The collection begins powerfully, culminating in a 10-section piece, “Dear Ghosts.” In the ninth poem, “So to Say the Sky,” Moody brings meditations on weather and nature back to the personal: “Either way, what comforts me / most is how my heart / still beats, and how somewhere / something is listening.” In the middle section, Moody offers a fitting and compelling interpretation of the Lewis and Clark expedition, “Lancaster County Notebook”: “How to begin / How to write / about a place / uninhabited.” In all, Moody has written a timely collection that questions the state of the climate and the biosphere and humanity’s place within and impact upon it. --Mark Eleveld
