"Examine your prison, every now and again,

focus. Do it slowly. With regard."

In this radically vulnerable collection of poems, Laura Lewis-Waters opens up to share some of the most private struggles she and her family faced during the recent pandemic as she and her husband welcomed her first child into the world.
