"Poets love to dress up their work in all sorts of outfits—professorial corduroy jackets with leather patches at the elbows, diaphanous Renaissance gowns, white lab coats and rubber gloves, clown drag—but this is what so, so many poems look like naked. Peter Davis deftly and unswervingly reveals a truer motive for metaphor."
