Coward by A. R. Ammons

Bravery runs in my family.

I find this little poem very interesting. It can be taken in two ways. One, that is obvious, the author is saying bravery is something that is a present characteristics in his family members. OR! that bravery is litterly a characteristic that is running away from his family. No one carries it and deal with the undesirable reality they are cowards.

He's in a witty way, saying that the way his family portray bravery is by running away. Thus why the poem is named "Coward".
