“Ebo Barton is the queer echo to the first whisper of  revolution. Backlash to cynicism, they’ll have you  believing in yourself again.”
- Poet, Tara Hardy

"Tell my mother, I've uninstalled the whisper in my authentic."

insubordinate / 2020

ISBN: 9781792345067
Publication Date: August 27th, 2020

Insubordinate is Barton's first collection of work. Through this collection, they discover themselves, acknowledge their history and navigate a world unready for their existence. Through these 14 poems, you can see the lens in which Barton sees the world and how the world reflects back to them. Insubordinate is a protest to the oppressor's story, what we know as "history" and Barton simply won't accept that as fact.

This self-published collection of poetry has sold over 500 copies, in 5 countries, various local and national libraries and local bookstores.
