WAITING I AM by Mathias Jansson

waiting 21a

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: The visual poem is composed of  three tables mounted in three lucky wheels. I suppose a fair such as Coney Island has Lucky Wheels. The wheels could symbolise waiting but also the possibilities of combining and creating new verses in the poem from the selected words.
