Opening on a “Cattle carcass still steaming,” Hedge Coke’s poetry collection Burn is a highly visual chronicle of destruction and what survives. And yet even seeing is susceptible to the blaze. If there’s anything we learn from Burn, it’s that fire singes everything in the end.

—Caroline Hagood, author of Lunatic Speaks and Making Maxine's Baby, in the Kenyon Review

Burn is relentless. A smoldering, ceaseless, fever voice that tells of a consuming rage destroying mountains, bats, 150 head of Black Angus—even the water isn’t safe. Masterfully written by a poet in her prime.

—LeAnne Howe, author of Shell Shaker, Miko Kings: An Indian Baseball Story, and forthcoming Savage Conversations

Allison Adelle Hedge Coke’s stunning work never disappoints. She writes the consuming fire–always on the original edge of remaking.

—Jan Beatty, author of The Switching/Yard and Jackknife: New and Selected Poems

Necessary illumination, visionary healing, groundbreaking and timely.

—Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of the United States
