about this item

"At once gospel and troubadour song, these deeply spiritual and expansively ****** poems are lucid, unflinching, urgent. This is an extraordinary debut."Mary Szybist

Rich in religious and artistic imagery, Trouble the Water is an intriguing exploration of race, sexuality, and identity, particularly where selfhood is in constant flux. These intimate, sensual poems interweave pop culture and historymoving from the Bible through several artistic erasto interrogate what it means to be fully human as a ******, black body in twenty-first century America.

Derrick Austin is a Cave Canem fellow and earned his MFA from the University of Michigan.
