In the writing of Wait, Ned Baeck intends to cut through the dishonesty and abuse that skew life. The subject is the struggle to live with integrity, and is as much about pain as love, squalor as aspiration. If the poems mark that the apprenticeship to poetry is endless, that is a decent place to start.
Wait until the poachers shift camp, / wait for the she-lion's kill / and the male's limpid roar, / the trolley of elephant and gazelle / making their evening trip to the river.
