Abstract

Drinking Water Out of Streams is a collection of poetry that plays with lyric and narrative form. The collection is arranged with lyric poems surrounding a series of linked narrative poems in the voice of a suburban high school French teacher. These are poems with a subject: both poetic forms weave dark humor, a sense of survival, and joyful social observation through themes of gender, the body, self-destruction, family, and obligation.
