Resistance! Chris Giovacchini



Resistance!  ∼  Chris Giovacchini

Lines Being Drawn

By Chris Giovacchini

Thanksgiving is easy in Big Bend National Park, in south west Texas

Where the Rio Grande winds around the chin of the Lone Star State.

Camped on the northern bank, the landscape of wide open embraces

Mexico’s Santa Elena Canyon, and the lunar buttes of Texas,

Sage brush, coyotes, mesquite, the old abandoned border crossing, and

A hot spring.      The big river here forms a natural barrier.

Hard to imagine a Berlin style, medieval boundary in this wide open world.

May it never come to pass, to mar this magical expanse.
