Review of "Joyride" by Ana Bozicevic

"Joyride" by Ana Bozicevic was offered by's Poem-A-Day on November 26, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

The poet reveals in her notes that "Joyride" "is a play-by-play of a dream."  There is certainly a dream logic to the verses.  There is also a pleasant, lilting rhythm which argues against the dream being a nightmare, although some of the images are more consistent with a nightmare, and the words "bad dreams" are used later in the poem.  The final lines bring "you" into the narrative in a puzzling way.  The final sentence should end with a question mark--the reason it does not is unclear.
