As the coronavirus crisis is forcing many people around the world to enter into their third month of quarantine (be it self imposed or otherwise), poetry can be a great tool for momentary escape. This is a collection of thought-provoking visual works from poets from all around the globe that use art to express their hopes, worries and dissent. We hope that this exhibition provides momentary escape from our current reality. Allow these poems to take you in a journey away from the pressures of current life and into the brilliance of the creative mind.
