Ode to US 1, Howard County, Maryland
The poem grew out of my experiences, observations, and concerns when involved in various planning groups and activities in the late-1990s and early-2000s as well as general observations over the years. This poem is part of a series set along the US 1 corridor in Howard County. I am ambivalent about the changes that are occurring. Improvements are needed, but we need to be mindful of the impact on lower income individuals and households who live and work along the US 1 corridor.
