The editorial staff of the The Thing Itself extends their apologies to Spring 2018 author Catherine Lee for the misprint of her work, “Missing Piece (For Jason)” in the printed edition of journal No. 45.
We are working to install new procedures for the review process for proofs for all versions of the journal.
The online edition of journal No. 45 has been corrected. Additionally, we would like to showcase the completed poem here for all of our readers.
MISSING PIECE (for Jason)
by Catherine Lee
Bio: Catherine A. Lee founded, and ran for 13 years, Studio Red Top, Inc., a loft space/nonprofit in Boston. There Lee began exploring poetry as a percussive voice with jazz musicians—including joint gigs with her mentor, Beat poet/hipster tedjoans in 1986-87—and produced concerts, jam sessions, and readings. Though primarily a poet, she writes grants, other types of nonfiction, and produces video storylines. Her multimedia creations are archived on Soundcloud (http://soundcloud.com/jazz-cat-lee) and Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/jazzovation).
