The video below is a short excerpt of my multi-media poem "West: A Translation," a book-length work commissioned by Utah's Spike 150 organization to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental's completion in Promontory, Utah. This video was filmed by City of Asylum, Sept. 2, 2019, where I performed. Video blurs briefly at the seven-minute mark.
