Great premise, love the title
and some nice elaborations. I especially like "I was not yet bulletproof./I learned
that feeling the world has never moved it", which is insightful and yet easy to relate to.

I found this poem delicate and beautiful. Don't let anal 3rd grade english teachers get you down on the grammer. Grammer is obviously not most pertinent when it comes to poetry. I found the flow and imagery of this poem sensational despite other criticisms.

Can't anyone write a proper review, here?
Bryan, you must have made a lot of enemies along the way. This is a great, great poem. I'm going to hesitate a guess that it's about Christopher Reeve, but if not, my pardons, it applies rather well. I felt a thrill in nearly every line, here. In particular, the first and last stanzas were strong. Kudos.

Bryan, you need to go back to school. Work on your grammar. I'm disgusted. You should try attending a small, liberal arts institution in the American West. For $30,000 a year.

I thought it was the sin bin
Mr. Charles' fine use of hyperbole is second only to his stature as a human being. Seriously, there are trees in California that are being chopped down. I'm not kidding. If you relax, close your eyes, and imagine that you are a speck on the lens of my glasses, then you will understand exactly how *simple* this all really is. Not that I really have anything to say about Mr. Charles. I'm sure he's a wonderful person, a peach of a man with good teeth and a girl on each arm (or a boy, depending on Mr. Charles' preferences). I bet he even is happy, sort of, with his lot in life which is more than I can say for the guy in the cubicle next to me.
