'In The Drink' is the unflinching second poetry collection from Emily Crocker. Poems stream through 'In The Drink', collecting hauntings of desire and futures lost. Visceral and at times crushingly funny, 'In The Drink' truly makes poetry of a working class queerness.
Every afternoon you bring out the scraps.
Shoes off, shirt unbuttoned, head open.
The hens flocking like ravenous mourners,
flustered through the motions, dusty and grey.
