Poetry Foundation Staff Picks 2013 

"His voice stands out, and the poems in TINA are his best and most ridiculous yet. Davis's work is smart, dryly (and slyly) hilarious, and surprisingly meaningful." 

                             --Holly Amos 

The Best American Poetry Blog

"Davis works in the same vein as John Ashbury, by making things so personal, they're universal." 

                             --Michael Schiavo
