Talking Earth Anthology: Four poems from Sometimes Subversive by Robert A. Davies. Now in his 80s, Robert Davies maintains the perpetually fresh approach to his work of the true artist. His five collections of poetry have ranged from poems about his acre of land in the tiny forest town of Timber to poems about caring for AIDS patients, war, and urban inequalities.
