A full version of the poem appears in her second collection Disturbance (Seren, 2013).
[Disturbance] “…is a poetry collection published by Seren Books, where I used to work, and I think it’s fantastic. It’s narrative poetry that tells the story about a family and their community after the father of the family murders his wife and son and then kills himself. It’s so well executed, and so worth your time.” —Jess Gofton

@IvyAlvarez Just finished Disturbance. It was…devastating. I will write more soon but I have to get to bed. Stayed up too late to read!
