THe Young Housewife

This poem is about loneliness, of both the young woman and her observer. It
is about isolation. It is about the people in the world longing for
contact, real and significant contact, with each other, who are nonetheless
separated by the edifice of society.

Does anyone see premeditated murder as the topic of this poem? This woman
is behind wooden walls so the narrator cannot see her, yet somehow he knows
that she's there. I think this implies that he's been watching her for a
while. And the next stanza seems to justify my thoughts. "Then AGAIN she
comes to the curb..." The narrator knows that this is her daily routine.
He then compares her to a fallen leaf (leaves mainly falling when they're
dead), so when he runs over the dried leaves with his car, he is imagining
what it would be like to kill her. That smile and nod then totally screams
