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.
