Desert Fence Line   2 comments

Peloncillo MountainsDesert Fence Line — Image by kenne

We’d picked up all the fencing tools
And staples off the road.
An extra roll of “bob” wire
Was the last thing left to load.

I drew a sleeve across my face
To wipe away the dirt.
The young man who was helping me
Was tuckin’ in his shirt.

I turned around to him and said,
“This fence is finally done,
With five new strands of ‘bob’ wire
Shinin’ proudly in the sun.

— from The Fence That Me and Shorty Built, by Red Steagall
