Video for Clarion Alley Mural Project

 UPDATE: The video reading broadcast during our online presentation for the Clarion Alley Mural Project is now available. I'm about 18 minutes in, but all the poets for the whole project are very much worth your time and attention. Greatest thanks to Maw Shein Win for inviting me to be a part of this project and Megan Wilson and Sharif Zakout of Arab Resource and Organizing Center for creating this fabulous mural. I was touched by it in a few ways; first, I noticed the hills in the background look like gold coins and my piece "How the Sword Maiden Did Love A Young Man" ends with gold coins ringing in the air, never falling, never dying. Second, I noticed that not all faces depicted in the mural died for the cause of Palestinian liberation. One of them was Mehdi Ben Barka. Now this mural lives forever in my heart.
