…because he believes that dreams are fragile
and shouldn't be disturbed.

~ excerpt from "The Great Displaced" by Omar Musa

The Disappearing is a project that (literally) maps poetry to place. As an ongoing project, The Disappearing uncovers poetry’s invisible currents in the world around us. Using geo-location to map poetry to place, the project charts fragmentary histories, impressions and memories, encouraging readers to interact in a non-linear way. Not only is The Disappearing a travel-sized library of poems about places, it is also an alternative travel guide that preserves and shares experiences, emotions and ideas that vanish over time.

The Disappearing website is currently undergoing a transformation. Explore the poems through our digital library and via the map below. Submit a poem to our public contributions project by emailing amelia@redroompoetry.org.
