LINE STUDY OF A MOTEL CLERK 

Allison Pitinii Davis speaks Ohioan, as James Wright wryly put it, and gives us a world in this utterly fresh, well-crafted, and exhilarating debut volume.  —EDWARD HIRSCH, author of Gabriel

 This is vital poetry of the working class, for whom "Saying nothing's beyond / our means."

—ROCHELLE HURT, author of The Rusted City

POPPY SEEDS

Winner of the Wick Poetry Chapbook Prize

As the title Poppy Seeds suggests, Allison Davis's poems are hard and small and round enough to travel just about anywhere. —KATHY FAGAN, author of Sycamore 

Davis's sensual, image-laden lines give us a feeling of another country—the old world—but it is also the place we can see all around us--if we open our eyes. —ILYA KAMINSKY, author of Deaf Republic
