Review of "[I'm not with my]" by Joshua Beckman

Editor's Note:  My apologies for the tardiness of this post.  I have been out of town and away from my computer and internet access.

"[I'm not with my]" by Joshua Beckman was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 23, 2013. Stream-of-consciousness poetry is often difficult to understand, as the mind leaps from one association to another, or from an observation to a memory.  This challenge is certainly there in Mr. Beckman's poem, yet anchoring the poem is a recognizable story about sitting in a park on a sunny day.
