I think this poem is very interesting and thought provoking. I understood
it better after reading about Gary's life as a child and a teenager. My
favorite line is "school is just a check mark...". This made me thinking
that the author was physically present at school, but his mind was not
attuned to learning, it was elsewhere; when he was day-dreaming about the
place that is far from home, school, borringness, powerty,and sadness. He
was dreaming about going to San-Francisco, where everything is so much
different than in his home town.
In general, the poem made me feel very sad and discomforted.
