Mare Davis has written lots of poems, love letters, essays, and term papers, and one dissertation. She has sung along with Phil Ochs and Holly Near, and danced in clubs to the Pointer Sisters. Today she dances to Bruce Springsteen, relaxes to Satie, and plays "Danzon #2" by Arturo Marquez every day. She reads and speaks French, studies Spanish, and practices translation. Her current project is a term paper/essay/translation/mashup on the topic of Colette’s "La Vagabonde."
