Questionable deals
A cattle trucking corral
Ranchers bow to greed.

the West
invented itself,

then
reinvented itself — 

first by cowboys,
then
by landowners,

which changed its
tone and image,

so much so
 now only the
makings of myths,

not history.

Nogales, Arizona & Nogales, Sonora — Image by kenne

“In a lifetime of crossing borders I find this pitiless fence the oddest frontier I have ever seen —
more formal than the Berlin Wall, more brutal than the Great Wall of China,
yet in its way just as much an example of the same folie de grandeur.
Built just six months ago, this towering, seemingly endless row of vertical steel beams
is so amazing in its conceit you either want to see more of it, or else run in the opposite direction —
just the sort of conflicting emotions many people feel when confronted with a peculiar piece of art.”

—  Paul Theroux, Ny Times, “The Country Just Over the Fence”
