Every Morning I Take a Bus Through the West Bank (II)

By Tarik Dobbs

Author's note: These visual poems draw inspiration from an earlier phase of this project, which itself emerged in response to my daily commutes across the bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. As I look out upon a landscape now heavily shaped by American colonialism, I know another world is possible.
