In Episode 7 of Multi-Verse, poet William Archila reads and discusses his poem “Northern Triangle Dissected” with host Evangeline Graham, in a conversation about the migration of unaccompanied minors in the wake of the Central American Crisis, and the use of metaphor to convey psychology.

“Northern Triangle Dissected” is part of William Archila’s new manuscript All Things Dark & Invisible. An earlier, slightly different version of the poem can also be found in Poetry.
