Those Skaters Can Fly (poem)

Those Skaters Can Fly

 

 

twisting in

mid-air

 

somersaulting

free falling

 

back to earth

your athletic

 

trim taut body

defies the laws

 

of gravity

sometimes

 

falling arse

over tit

 

like the rest

of us

 

when you get

it right:

 

perfection

grace

 

seem too

easy

 

 

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.
