We construct elaborate devices
to capture the forces of nature.

Of course, sometimes
nature just laughs
at who is ensnaring whom.

The Elissa
Galveston, Texas


Built in 1877,
the iron barque Elissa
is now harbored in Galveston.
On this cold, by southern standards,
February weekend
it is being rigged
with a new set of sails.
