transhumance

for Ocean

This poem collages text found at Boulder RTD station on 1 July 2018, repurposing the vocabulary to raise questions about travel, transport, freedom and movement into and around the United States at this time.  As two white British travellers using the RTD that evening, Ocean & I were in stark contrast to the many thousands of families separated and detained at the Mexican border prior to and during our stay at Naropa from 10-30 June.
