Mr. Eric Davis
Remembering Eric Davis:
Mr. Eric Davis pierced our jaded skins with his infectious smiles. Our immune systems could never repel his encouragement to reserve judgment and criticism: not to scar ourselves or our writing with it, but rather to apply it with reductive insight to the poems of DH Lawrence and the Heart of Darkness.
While it is true that people may catch more flies with honey, Mr. Davis chose to cultivate queens and workers, never drones, to build a multitude of healthy hives that pollinate countless fields of free-living flowers.
