2020 changed us. From a global pandemic that uprooted our lives and took the lives of
countless loved ones, to cries for justice that rang out across the world, 2020 is a year that we
cannot forget. It's a year that we shouldn't forget. Written almost entirely in isolation during
the COVID-19 pandemic, Our Bones Ache Together is a journey of heartache, home, healing,
and hope. Documenting the disappearance of the middle class, growing wealth disparity, and
life during seemingly endless unprecedented times, these poems remind us of the pain we
carry, but also of the hands we hold to keep moving. Life goes on, even when we don't believe
it can. From the coldest winter, spring blooms.
