In this episode 162, we meet award-winning Charlotte poets Christopher Davis and Allison Hutchcraft, authors of the poetry books, Oath, published by Main Street Rag and Swale, published by New Issues Press with Western Michigan University. Chris and Allison both teach at University of North Carolina, Charlotte.

David Trinidad says “there is a sharp, steel-like edge to the lines in Christopher Davis’s poems-so finely wrought are they, and attuned to ‘the brutality of fact,’ the limits of human interaction.”

Paisley Rekdal says “Hutchcraft examines the delicate balance between rapture and ravishment, in poems as ambitious as they are beautiful.”

We start the show with Chris reading his poem “Examine Her Life” and Allison reading her poem “I have written myself into a Tropical Glow.”
