Spanning oceans and continents, language and the imagination, the unfathomable distances between people and their desires, Allison Davis's Poppy Seeds creates an immaculate atlas. Here language is broken¦ against the margin of the sea, and a word is a thing that can be wash[ed] away. Here the body is both a lesson and a place with an edge you can drive to. The book longs[s] for as long as Ohio rivers. Tangled between worlds and languages both old and new, our deepest emotions search for their roots, hoping to find a place to call home.
