“The Ringmaster Answers the Phone”
Collaborators’ Q&A: Artist Meghan Keane: I was, and continue to be, inspired by how complicated the imagery was to consider in visual form. It was a bit dark, enigmatic, frenetic yet motionless (“unable to be still” yet “drowning”)… Poet Amorak Huey: I was struck immediately by the tension—frustration? anger, maybe even?—on the right side of the page. I love the messiness of it, the scribbling-out of it,—and I also love the brightness of the red.
Poet Amorak Huey teaches creative and professional writing at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. Artist Meghan Keane is currently a teaching artist at Kentler International Drawing Space and a visiting alumni artist at the Brooklyn College art department printshop.
