Sink or Swim is a collection of poems written over the course of a long and difficult lesbian love. It focuses on themes of longing, loss, dreams, and desire, and asks the reader to review the depth of their personal relationships through the author’s infatuation.
Rendered varyingly in rhythmic rhyme, simple prose, basic verse and scattered syntax, Sink or Swim: Reflections on an Ending is a harsh and haunting love story that speaks for itself from beginning to end.
