Unburied is a collection of poems that I wrote during the Spring of 2020, and follows similar themes and topics covered in Trapped. The book went into print this past week, and I have now opened pre-orders from that first printing (which I will be receiving in a few weeks, and then will immediately dispatch to those who order).
