The Bus Driver's Threnody brings to poetic life a world literally in transit: the movement of people along its roads and highways facilitated by public transit and the drivers who steer their buses. Focusing on the separate world-within-a-world of the bus—with relationships among riders, between drivers and riders, and between the bus and other vehicles that share the road—these poems give weight and substance to a segment of the everyday that is largely ignored. Within that separate world, this book brings to light (and dark) the depths and complexities of metropolitan living through this seemingly prosaic facet of modern American life.
