Poetry Break

“You Love a River” by Ire’ne Lara Silva

I never had the opportunity to meet Ire’ne Lara Silva in person, but her poetry is wonderful. Her words carry so much weight, heavy with her message. I have chosen this poem – “You Love A River” – because it seems that the area has been receiving extra attention these last months. National news, of course, only seems to cover these border towns when the GOP wants to pretend they care about the dire situation of “undocumented children.” Or when they want to erect a wall to poison the beauty of the Rio Grande.

So please listen to the twelfth poem I have chosen for National Poetry Month.
