Landscape of The Wait is a poetic response to the trauma and uncertainty of a teenager’s car crash and year-long coma. The young man’s aunt and a poet, Jami Macarty, offers poems to try to make sense of crisis and liminal spaces between life and death, consciousness and coma, light and darkness, sameness and change. Her words enact the energies of living in the extended limbo that lurk around every corner for every auto driver and passenger and family member.
