Those Skaters Can Fly (poem)



Those Skaters Can Fly



twisting in




free falling


back to earth

your athletic


trim taut body

defies the laws


of gravity



falling arse

over tit


like the rest

of us


when you get

it right:





seem too




Joanne Fisher


As someone with poor motor skills I’ve always envied skaters. Get me on a skateboard and I’m an accident waiting to happen.
