Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Angela Veronica Wong: I think that the artistic response showed me how much of the poem has imagery of parting, of coming together, of lifelines and the uncertainty of reaching out. Artist Meghan Keane: I liked the blood image and the map image. That never changed. I like the idea of a map-like painting that created its paths through the “spaces.”
