“When you choose to be a poet,
when you choose to spill like this,
bleed like this, cry like this,
your pain becomes an exhibit.
A place for people to walk through
and then leave when they are ready.
No one ever asks a museum if it’s okay.”

— Rudy Francisco, “Museum”

“i. her name is WAR. once upon a time, her voice
was the sound of bayonets, of cavalry - now,
it’s a whisper in the right ear, hesitant fingers
pulling a very different trigger.

ii. her name is FAMINE. children hold out their hands
and beg for scraps while her belly grows full and round,
never starved but never satisfied -
would you like fries with that?

iii. her name is PESTILENCE. she sits alone
at hospital bedsides, silent amid the frantic beeping
of IV monitors and life support machines,
cold hands soothing against clammy skin.

iv. her name is DEATH. these days, she drives
a burnt-out red mustang and looks
like the faces of everyone you used to know, and
she’s hungry. her teeth shine in the darkness. god, she’s hungry.”

“a bouquet of clumsy words: you know that place between sleep and awake where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? i wish we could feel like that more often. i also wish i could click my fingers three times and be transported to anywhere i like. i wish that people didn’t always say just wondering when you both know there was a real reason behind them asking. and i wish i could get lost in the stars. listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door, let’s go.”

McQueen created shows that were aggressive and poetic, horrifying and mesmerising, savage and beautiful. “It’s fearlessness, that’s the thing you can’t replicate,” says Sam Gainsbury. “You can have the best designers in the world but if they’re fearless… that’s the thing that separates them from everybody.
