    What tripe! Yes, of course someone is going to be moved backwards on skates for several days! And then get blown into the air by the wind and wave to others who are unfortunate enough to find themselves in a Collins poem. If the skater were truly like Bartleby, he never would have put the skates on in the first place. He would have preferred NOT to go skating. (Report) Reply
