First edition of 88 numbered and signed copies. Bound by Studio Alcyon. A poem by Gaylord Schanilec in what is a somewhat spontaneous reporting of events from March 2020 until Inauguration Day 2021. Features three wood engravings by Schanilec, one smaller wood-engraving, one single-fold small folio and one large double-fold folio on Japanese paper.

The book is Schanilec's take on the Pandemic of 2019/2020 from his perspective in quarantine in rural Wisconsin. His perception of Nationalistic Triablism lead him to start keeping tracking of the world-wide death toll. The opening line is his take on how people "die twice: once when they die and once when no one remembers them". He also relates the crow family of birds, or corvids, to "Covid". The next section is Schanilec's take, through his poetry, on the relation of the death of George Floyd and George Washington's teeth (with the teeth being made of ivory and some of his slaves).

The next section is the Schanilec's combination of common sayings that stick with society and the President of the United States (or POTUS), while using some of these sayings and the letter 'I' in the style of T.J. Cobden-Sandersen's 'I' in his The English Bible which he printed under his Doves Press. While using text from the third and fourth amendment from the American Bill of Rights, with an excerpt of John B. McLemore, a resident clock repairman from Alabama.

The final section is composed of notes, with a final tally of the COVID death count worldwide and common phrases and sayings printed in blue. Also featured is a quote from Amanda Gorman's The Hill We Climb, which was the poem used for the inauguration of U.S. President Joe Biden.
