Excellent writing, and a very good point. I used to do those same things and worse to my sisters barbies as a young lad. Brought back many memories.

interesting... could be taken in some different ways. i liked to mess w/barbie too as a child... how dare barbie be so perfect and me so horrible! but we must remember that barbie is not real. if she were she'd fall on her hands and knees b/c she's too well endowed!lol.

This is awesome.. It sticks the stupid, "Barbie is perfect" picture down peoples throats.

This is a superb piece - I keep having another look at it. One of the best I have read for a long time.
The simple form and repetition really suit the image of playing with a doll. And yet by the end we begin to wonder if its about a doll or not. The layers in this poem blow my mind.

Wow! It's so raw and truthful. Very impressive.

Quite POTD worthy. I love the imagery of your tragic Barbie. I already have one Barbie poem in my favorites list, I think I shall make it two now...

This is wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. Our culture causes us to think so much of Barbies and how we compare to them, and this just prompted more thoughts for me.
