Thank you for printing Kim Addonizio’s poem “Reminder” [December 1996]. I have never read such a sensitive treatment of the problems and possibilities of loving a disabled man. Disabled myself — hemiplegic from a stroke — I have loved many women, and yet have never truly been loved in return. Reading Addonizio’s poem caused me to pause and think: I am still a man. Maybe, someday.
