I first reasd this poem while riding on a NYC subway when I was dispalyed as part of some sort of promotion. It seemed so appropriate to be reading it while "commuting" as is the subject in the poem. I was particularly captured by the imagery of a "whip mapping the countries of the air". Neeldess to say I have never forgotten it.
