I got my feet strapped in

running start, over the cones

we’re learning to fly



first monday in february,

watching derby basic practice

and skating round outside the track.

I can say I’ve skated backwards

after falling so many times.

finally figured it out once

and then repeated the motion.

be the flamingo. so sublime.


adrenaline, forward motion,

speed. up and away, race the pain.

very intense practice, learning

to transition, stop and go, and

hop. must pay more attention to

my surroundings. tunnel vision

forgot to breath. restraint, what’s that?

is it time to learn something new?
