…a place for waste…

Joppa is a place. Part four.

A river runs on the backside of Joppa.

For years,

a river development project has been in the works.

In theory,

the City of Dallas would take over Joppa and flip it over to some developers.

Strip malls and track homes would follow.

And Joppa would become something else.

The project has been met with a healthy dose of cynicism

but already,

a bridge, a few fresh roads and a couple of new houses have gone up.

I have no opinion.

All I know is when I went to explore the river under the highway bridge,

I found an empty pistol lying in the mud.

People rarely misplace their guns by accident.

Does that have any relevance whatsoever?

Probably not.
