Malcolm Davidson began writing poetry in his mid 40's and enjoys it as good balance for the left side of his engineering-focused brain. He is an active participant in Ocean State Poets activities and is part of a small group that does a poetry workshop at the ACI in Cranston every two weeks.
He also shares his work at two Assisted Living homes, one in Middletown, the other in Providence.
In addition to writing poetry his creativity propelled him to writing a musical about corporate corruption. Some of the songs from this can be heard at www.companymatters-themusical.com.
He works as a software consultant and enjoys his travels which take him all over the globe.
► Malcolm's Origami micro-chapbook & selected poem are available below.
Nike baseball cap covered the head,
Nokia bag slung over shoulders,
hunched, swaying as the train
moved between stations,
Nike and Nokia, scuffed shoes,
shuffled off, and memories
of long ago, eyes faded,
laugh lines, sad lines,
wish I could talk,
find out about his life, sharing some tea.
