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.
