Lambda Literary reviews: The Missing Museum! “PUSSIES RIOT IN THE SNOW/ THIS WINTER OLYMPICS.”

“The immediate and the inaccessible eye one another in the halls, exhibits of history both natural and not.”


“These poems do feel tied to the zeitgeist; Vladmir Putin rides past on a steed as “PUSSIES RIOT IN THE SNOW / THIS WINTER OLYMPICS” early in the book. Later, King compares wine with books: “ICE WINE. AGED IN AMERICAN OAK. FRENCH BOWELS BISSECT / NAPA VALLEY UP TO THE OREGONIAN MOUTH.” There are times when rhymes bubble to the surface in unexpected ways, but here the visual overtakes the auditory, nearly pulling it in its wake.”
