Waiting by Nick Jarvis

In January 2011, I took part in the crazy adventure that is the 24hr Comic Etc.

Tom Sharpe, one of the project organisers and the man who digitally glued this insanely fiddly paper collage comic poem back together, writes:

“This was a fantastic example of how to adapt, adopt and improve, with some stand-out lines, pseudo-pannelling, Hornby layout nod and hints of sadness, happiness, loneliness, compulsion, boredom and sea shells.”

For Tom’s complete review and interpretive speculations click here.

For my own ramblings about the concepts and sculptural process behind this poem, and a word or two about the mental implications of writing poetry for 24 hours without a break, click here.
