John Davis was born and raised in Seattle. He is the author of a chapbook, “The Reservist.” For many years he has peformed in rock and roll bands. Currently he resides on an island in Puget Sound, Washington, and teaches high school.
Blues in D minor, big bellies over factory belts, and Elvis Presley license plates-Gigs is a collection of poems that shows us the gentle beauty of ordinary life. Davis's language breathes, without labor. His metaphors fit tight. And the rhythm of each word keeps pace with our innermost beats. Absolutely every poem in this book hammers a rightly strung cord.
