“Joe’s presence was a comfort but also a nagging reminder of what it meant to be accountable to someone else, how easy it was to lose myself if people weren’t ever-present. He was to me what I needed from a man who wanted nothing from me.”
Melissa Grunow, Realizing River City

“There were two-foot-tall coils of barbed wire over the bridge wall that caught shopping bags in their spikes and shredded them. I watched those plastic ribbons fight in the wind, and far below saw concrete irrigation ditches that once contained the Rio Grande. The water dissipated, the only thing to see was the concrete spray painted with graffiti. The city, like the river, had dried up and left little in its place.”

“The desert tells a different kind of truth.”

“Don't ever give anyone credit for something that is yours.”
Melissa Grunow, Realizing River City

“We spoke in lyrics, in rhyme. Our dialogue was plagiarized , bastardized, glorified. Warmth penetrated our skin as our bodies came together, and the city would come alive with mischief and allusion.”
Melissa Grunow, Realizing River City
