“Rolling Around I Fall Off the Earth”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators’ Q&A: Artist Bailey Bob Bailey: I totally responded to the momentum of the poem, the locomotive quality of  its relentlessness. Plus it’s extremely visual.  I loved the messy grandeur it presented. Poet Wheeler Light: I thought there’d be something toothy, which is how I interpret that block-shape in the center—teeth reforming into different shapes and ideas. There’s this wash of blues in the background as both the water and space. I’m completely in love with this sort of hand made of bright colors in the bottom right. There’s so much change and noise in this painting.

Poet Wheeler Light lives in Charlottesville, VA, is a poetry reader at Pretty Owl Poetry, and is the author of two books of poetry.  Artist Bailey Bob Bailey is represented by Ethan Cohan Gallery in NYC and Beacon, NY and at The Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, MA. He lives year round in Truro, MA.
