Davis also has an essay responding to the poetry of Robert Wrigley at Voltage Poetry, an online anthology created and edited by the poets Kim Addonizio and Michael Theune. The anthology focuses on the "turn" in a poem, when a measure of energy transforms the writing, often leading to an emotional insight.
