Analysis and comments on She laid her docile Crescent down by Emily Dickinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on May 1st, 2005 at 10:30 AM.

This poem is about a girl who buys a crescent roll for brekfest, and then
puts it down so she can throw rocks at her car mechanic, who forgot the
date that her car was supposed to be fixed by.

She was all like "great, this is just the NEWS I wanted today. I can't
TRUST any of you mechanics, becasue you just give me the SHAFT"

She gets so angry, that she rips the emblem off the hood of her car and
flings it across the gas station, and then she fled.
