David Green is a clinician working at a community health center in Boston, MA with Spanish-speaking people from the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Born in Detroit, he was seven when his family moved to Venezuela. This was coincident with the beginning of the Jimenez dictatorship, 1952-1958, and he remained in Venezuela until age 26. When writing poems, he sometimes composes in either Spanish or English. His writing reflects the duality of his multi-lingual thinking and speaking. His previously published poems have appeared in the Lyric Review, Bellevue Literary Review, and Pangyrus.
