Stop! Look! Listen! Dafna Izenberg's Music Recommendation

Peter Gabriel has described his song “Here Comes the Flood” as being metaphorical, about a washed-over, infiltrated state of mind more than an actual natural disaster. Nearly fifty years after its release on his self-titled 1977 album, and in the immediate wake of deadly mudslides in southern B.C., it seems like a literal prophecy. I first heard it while watching the TV series The Americans, in which it plays behind—and steals—a heartbreaking season-ending scene.

Interview with Melody Wilson

Editorial Assistant Rosie Leggott’s Interview with Winter 2023 Contributor Melody Wilson
Rosie Leggott: Do you write all of your poems based on personal experience, or do you ever draw on the experiences of others that you are passionate about? When do you know that you will write about something? Is it in the moment (as it appears with Postmodern Pedestrian), or is it more reflective (as it appears in Hand Me Down)?
