    i remember reading this a long time ago and came back yesterday to show it to some of the kids in my class instead of lecturing them at length on the subject. it is difficult for those of us that enjoy words to understand the pain that deciphering them causes others that are less fortunate.

    needless to say
    your poem was a great success.
    i do hope that some of them will be less unkind
    to some of their class mates.


    THANK YOU very much. .... and sorry for not commenting first time around!

    I came to check out this after I read your latest post which was also good.

    you think you know the place until you stumble on people who can write the pants off of poems

      Hey Annie :)

    Fair play for writing this...I came here from a comment you left on someone's page and read that you're a teacher and this was inspired by one of your pupils.
    What a thoughtful gesture, writing this poem in a self-explanatory manner...it's a great example of how dyslexia renders the words. It's certainly helped me understand it better.
    Funny question: would Ben be able to read this more easily in its jumbled form?
    I like the title here and the way you used the words to create double meanings, so it still reads quite coherently.
    It's good to know there are considerate teachers out there; I've heard some horror stories about kids who had Dyslexia when it wasn't as widely recognised as a learning disability. I'm sure he'll do well in your class

      I really love this. I felt hopelessly stupid while I was reading this, which is great. It helps people to better understand what it's like. I have no nitpicking details for you, because I thought this was amazing. Kudos.

      I have to give props to this one...I mean talk about original! i know i like minimalistic poems, but this is on a whole different level! Really amazing, actually.. I dont know anyone dyslexic so this really took me off guard, and off the wall as well..I LOVE it. Thanks for writing this. But the first line still bothers me, though... I can't figure it out, and I'm not screwing it either. : So you better tell me...But all in all, this was a simply wonderful write. Can't say more.

      That's actually rather touching, on a personal note.

    On of my friends was dyslexic as a kid. He was actually brilliant- Amazingly smart and could understand almost anything. But he was told he was stupid throughout his entire life, and it took a tole on his self-worth.

    But enough about my life. That was actually... Well, surprisingly likeable, even though it took a few minutes for me to clue in and get it. Really well portrayed, too... Hehe. Ingenious, actually. Especially the title. It made me look twice when I was scrolling through the New Submissions list. 'Dyslexia... Wait, that's not how you spell it!'

    See, it takes me awhile to get stuff like that. ;)

    Awfully good write, though. Fave'd. :D
