    Can I ask you a question Mrs. Sue is this poem about a child getting carsick in a car??

    And what does "borders", and "backseat" mean in the poem?

  • 9th grade lit poem -

    To me the backseat symbolizes being taken somewhere by her parents. She was scared and seeking reassurance.

    The borders are literally borders between countries, yet they also represent the many changes we all go through in our lives.

    The setting in the first part of the poem is in a car driving on a road north of Tampico. The setting shifts, though, in the third stanza. There is no particular place named, but it's obviously referring to a time later in the poet's life.
