Concise Poems, by Davis Wayne Davis.

 

a click

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

 

immigrant

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

 

haiku

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

 

thread

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

     

 


Davis Wayne Davis has written over 2000 poems, and he especially likes concise verse. His work is printed in the sacramento anthology; more may be found online. Davis served in the U.S. Army overseas. He was last assigned to Ft. Bragg, N.C. as — in his words— "psyop propagandist/photojournalist". He has twice hiked Mt. Whitney, has three daughters and is a testicular cancer survivor.
