John Davis

Poem

Two Weeks to Remember

Human to Human

2021

John Davis is a drop-out in the Ben Reuben Fitness by Mail Program.

To revive, he meditates over stinging nettle soup when not primping with snakes in the wind. He performs in a blues band, hums silently while adrenalin worms into his lungs and liver. His poetry writing is an attempt to capture the trills of waxwings. He craves the danger in a honeysuckle breeze. He is the author of Gigs (Sol Books) and a chapbook, The Reservist.
