all the dragons have been put
in pet stores and the magic
swords melted down into third place
trophies for dodgeball and the
rings that make you invisible
are plastic slap bracelets even
the dwarves have lifts in their
shoes and are as clean shaven as
they dare to be without losing
their street cred
whatever natural bridge
led from that other place to this
or held up under our feet long
enough to let that other place thrive
here has collapsed under
the weight of adult shoes
as everything turns grey

This hurt to read, but so true!
Growing up is a pain in the ass. That’s why I refuse to do it.
It must be avoided at all costs!
I like this one very much.
That makes me happy 😊. Like I said to Oglach, I wasn’t too sure about this one.
Nice! I especially liked the dwarves worrying about their street cred… 🙂
It’s a modern problem.
Thank you! I wasn’t too sure about it.
The spirit of it reminds me of some of the works of Gregory Corso and Allen Ginsberg. It has your own unique feel to it’s but that’s the sense of excitement I got from reading.
Adulting does stuff. I think writing helps keep that inner kid alive. 😉
Still, it is always obvious things change. Even for a kid at heart like myself.
Change isn’t always bad though. Great poem. ^_^
Peter Pan in suit and tie.
I’d gladly give up my shadow once in a while.
