David Olsen – Vantage Points

               Vantage Points


The town’s highest point
   isn’t the water tower
      or the banker’s hilltop house.


Though some believe
   the spire atop the church
      makes you think of heaven,


from the public library
      can see forever.



David Olsen won the 2013 Cinnamon Press Poetry Collection Award; Unfolding Origami will appear in early 2015. Poetry chapbooks from US publishers include:

Sailing to Atlantis (2013), New World Elegies (2011), and Greatest Hits (2001).
