Rich in religious and artistic imagery, Trouble the Water is an intriguing exploration of race, sexuality, and identity, particularly where self-hood is in constant flux. These intimate, sensual poems interweave pop culture and history-moving from the Bible through several artistic eras-to interrogate what it means to be, as Austin says, fully human as a "queer, black body" in 21st century America.
