I think of everything at once…

Burrow is a fictional poetic comic about identity transformation in the feral sleepless early months of new motherhood, partly inspired by the discovery that trees sleep more than the author did when she was caring for her newborn. In Part III, I cut & pasted text from Parts I & II and reassembled the text to create new meaning. Burrow was originally self-published with support from the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.

The complete story can be read starting here.
