Transborder Immigrant Tool Series: Learn Desert Secrets From Bedouins and Indigenous Travelers | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it
Poet Amy Sara Carroll wrote a series of 24 poems, titled “The Desert Survival Series/La serie de sobrevivencia del desierto,” which were uploaded onto cellphones equipped with simple compasses and interfaces. Each poem is a form of lyrical advice that provides readers and listeners with tools for every hour of a day spent in the pernicious borderlands between the U.S. and Mexico. Truthdig will publish each of these poems in both Spanish and English over the next few weeks in our Poetry section, accompanied with bilingual audio recordings by various contributors to the project. To read the first and second poems in the series, click on the hyperlinks. For more information on the project, watch the video presentation below.
