The El Paso Trail

We rested before valleys, sold oranges for bus fare. We drew a map of alleys and a picture of despair and memorized the image and soaked it in gasoline. It was ashes – your arrival, the potency of your scene diminishes now daily – whether goddess, nymph or queen your worshippers have left your temples and begun listening to me. We sold handmade leather keychains, we sold 3 dollar grilled cheese and scraped enough to get through Texas and escape the mellow west. Before valleys, we rested; I stayed up to watch for wolves.

  1. I live in El Paso while working at White Sands Missle Range in 1959. I have drove all over the El Paso country-side. Texas is a beautiful scenic that should be included in anyone’s travels.
