Kelli Russell Agodon’s Hourglass Museum is a fascinating look at the often-invisible line between poetry and museum art. Many of her best pieces in this collection are inspired by the beautiful artwork that hangs in the halls of her local museums. Agodon uses each one as a metaphor in her poems, balancing her rich inner emotional life against the demands of her outward personal life and the relationships in between.
