Ode to Billy

by Uriel Tovar

And just like that
With a final flailing of
A distorted guitar
We say goodbye to our
Adolescent hero
The veil of fanboydom
Lifted revealing a poor sport
Past his prime
With a trail of broken dreams
And broken hearts behind him.


Author's Note: at the almost acoustic christmas

Really a fine flow and construction to this. "veil of fanboydom" is a great phrase.

i enjoyed the opening line, and especially "The veil of fanboydom." honest, nostalgiac, a fitting farewell. xopk
