Review of "Tackle Football" by Dan Chiasson

"Tackle Football" by Dan Chiasson, a teacher at Wellesley College, was offered by's Poem-A-Day on December 30, 2013.  A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:

The poem is presented in six fairly even-lined tercets.  An elaborate metaphor is made between the "snow" or blurriness that occurs when a television frame is paused and the adolescent boys frozen in the actual snow of a winter tackle football game.
