Skates And Boards

Vintage Words


I never met anyone who liked

to seal a board on wheels

to his feet and challenge height

with speed.


Rails and stairs, curved walls

twenty feet up or more sing the praises

of the skateboard flyer.


Leap on air, flip the board,

descend with perfect X-game balance.

It took a while and the cost was high

in bruised and broken trials.


Victory is a long slide down

and a bit of switchover artistry

to glide to the end of the course

upright and cheesing.
