Poetry. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. ALL IS NOT YET LOST bears witness to the interconnectedness and interdependence that is unearthed in the fertile chaos of change. Through the cycles of degradation, disintegration and necessary resurrection that shape the dance of environmental, political and personal revolution we find common dreams and common ground: "a bond of love exists... the miraculous present."
