Local poet! BURY ME HERE is a poetry collection that comes face-to-face with the concept of death. Within its pages we see a struggle to reconcile with not only the death of life, but also the death of ideas, beliefs, innocence, and love. What is left when these pillars of the human experience are taken from us? Can we move on in these new realities, or will we remain frozen in place, afraid to venture into the dark? Can we accept that sometimes things are our own fault? Can we learn from what came before? Can we find answers to questions we didn’t see coming?
