This Is Just To Say by Gail Carson Levine, illustrations by Matthew Cordell

This Is Just to Say

I have shortened 
my nose
with your saw

because 
honestly
telling lies
is so much fun

Forgive me
I don't care
about becoming 
a real boy

from Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It: False Apology Poems by Gail Carson Levine and illustrated by Matthew Cordell
