This Town - pictures

through the gate & into town for a "poet's tour"

All I might want, from archery set to zoot suit

Peeling paint and sly trompe l’oeil
This is my town

In this town, sheet metal horses gallop toward the old Baca building –

There are cowboys everywhere Chamber of Commerce even ordered up A street full of dark handsome men of steel

Construction paper sunflowers exhibit names of nascent artists

This town celebrates its history on walls
Trains run through buildings on Broadway

A train rounds the red rock mural on Ripley
clickety clacks for real real behind P & M

a converted livestock long house –
tongue & groove, tin roof, broken brick chimney

This is my town.
