Poem a day challenge- 1/5/15 (late)

Standard

Poem: “Ghosts on the Road” by David Rivard

Source: Poem a Day from poets.org

Favorite line/phrase:  “I think the need/ gets stronger, he said, it/ just gets stronger.”

Response:  This poem tricked me.  It felt too simple at first, too aware of its own intentions.  Then it swerved, and in swerving my heart became involved.  Don’t let my favorite line fool you, in the context of the poem, it packs a real wallop.
