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.
