i wrote that before i looked at the description, now i feel kind of silly.
but anyway, i read the title and i was like, "backwards letters? wtf? like in the band Korn, where the R is backwards?"
but then as i reached the end, i remembered that AMBULANCE is written backwards on the front of ambulances so people can read it in their mirrors =]
and the reason i even know this is because i'm in marching band and we perform at half time of the football games, and i dont remember if it's been every year or just every game last year, but one of the guys in band would go up to the ambulance people and ask them why ambulance was written backwards bc he thought it was funny.
if not for that, i never would've even noticed that it was backwards and would've been indefinitely confuddled by this piece
i like it much better now that i understand it. ((at first i was thinking of my spanish classes that i took beacuse they have all kinds of weird stuff in their alphabet))
it makes sense =]
i like it, i like the way you used personification
and i like the way you just didnt come right out and say "ambulance is written backwards on the front of ambulances" in the poem =]
