In Mexico
There is a palm that they say
Is bulletproof

It stands high
Swaying slowly
As warm walls of air
Shove it aside

A fist
Thrown in curiosity
Is enough to elicit
A satisfying thunk
Reminding you

That bulletproof
Is not the same
As invincible

This is really neat! It has great imagery, a unique idea, and a flowing rhythm. Good job! :D
