Concise Poems, by Davis Wayne Davis.


a click

this was written
with a fat tourist pen
that held your smell



i want to wave
you like a flag
in that scant
peasant dress



drops of summer rain
on the green, cotton awning —
fragrant as a forest.



then i have that dream of
my thumb, unraveling, again.

Whitney, has three daughters and is a testicular cancer survivor.
