Editor's Note: Apologies for the late postings today. I have been out of town and away from my computer and the internet.
In the Back Seat of History by Mary Biddinger was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on July 11, 2013. The poet reveals in her notes that she often finds poetry in the convergence of past and present. That might explain why In the Back Seat seems to be all over the place. However, it is obvious from the tone of the piece that the poem means much to the poet.
