What makes people so bulletproof in their automobiles?

Poem: What makes people so bulletproof in their automobiles?

The daffodil blooms shudder in the breeze. The phlox shows signs of pregnant blooms. It’s a prefect day for a Spring walk. I guess that’s what makes the moment captured in the poem so poignant.

But alas, I think I broke a rule regarding poetry: never explain your poem.

    • Good point. I try to avoid being a resolution junkie when it comes to poem endings. But I already broke one poetry rule today… why not two? šŸ™‚

      Could also be the influence of the German poet I’m translating. Brinkmann tends to echo the opening lines in the final lines.

      Glad you like the poem!
