Split This Rock Recommended Poetry Books of 2014

Praise for Allison Adelle Hedge Coke:

"These are the songs of righteous anger and utter beauty."—Joy Harjo

From "Carcass":

Split skin stretched over marrowless cage,
encased dry tomb, like those strewn through this loess reach, cradling past ever present here, and now you come walking riverside, bringing sensory thrill into daylight much like this cervidae culled morning each waking before demise. We move this way, catching life until death captures us, where we rot into the same dust holding multitudes before us, and welcoming those beyond.

Allison Adelle Hedge Coke is a poet, writer, performer, editor, and activist.

About the Author

"Allison Adelle Hedge Coke's fierce new poetry collection, Streaming, takes her always brave and startling sonics into new narrative spaces. These poems are full of needful improvisation and piano runs. Hedge Coke makes music from tornados and glyphs, from cranes spiraling overhead, and from the grumbling stomachs of hungry children. She sings these stories because she has to and because we need her to. And when the speaker in “Sudden Where” says “maybe we’d find something magnificent, give it up to make somebody happy,” it is clear that in these urgent poems, and in this necessary book, we've found both the magnificent and the unforgettable." —Adrian Matejka, author of The Big Smoke
