Poetry. Women's Studies. LGBT Studies. Nothing that is complicated may ever be simplified, but rather catalogued, cherished, exposed. THE MISSING MUSEUM spans art, physics & the spiritual, including poems that converse with the sublime and ethereal. They act through ekphrasis, apostrophe & alchemical conjuring. They amass, pile, and occasionally flatten as matter is beaten into text. Here is a kind of directory of the world as it rushes into extinction, in order to preserve and transform it at once.
