Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Disability Studies. Somatics. WAVEFORM documents an aqueous, stop-start conversation between two women poets with disabilities. The idea of suspension—being held back, held over, or held by larger bodies, especially water—serves as pivot point for a manuscript that begins with the problem of rising from bed in the morning, of gravity and the ankle, of making muscles that control speech contract and release. Quotidian rituals like listing provide structure while large marine creatures open this epistolary work to a kind of chronic floating.
