Rating: 5.0

To say good-bye
To that part that
No longer believes
In fairy-tales, or
Pumpkin pie wishes
Skipping rope, or
Skating past Billy Bob
With my tongue out so

Or that blood on T.V.

I like the way this poem spills down the page in quiet desperation. Strong imagery flashes and the ending is very real and very effective. Nice write.
