After the Blackout: Poems
Goodreads Choice Nominated poet J.R. Rogue’s newest poetry collection—After The Blackout—explores the author’s experiment to give up alcohol for a year. And how it transformed into a new way of life.
Weaving between debilitating hangxiety and the gross marriage between alcohol and her sexual encounters, the author tears down memories and walls to expose the black and white definition of alcohol abuse society feeds us. And brings the stark truth to the surface—the face of alcohol use disorder can be anyone, and any reason to give up alcohol is valid.
This collection is about everything we lose and the ways we let ourselves go.
And in the end—how to reclaim peace.
