(Inspired by) National Roller-Skating Month


cotton candy

carpeting on walls

glow stick necklaces

abra, abra cadabra

reach out and grab my hand

neon flashing light

horizontal stripe


dj track

boogie oogie oogie

 like the white cola wave

on rubber wheels

past fuzzy dice

thriller scream

pepperoni slice

weave through the crowd

round and round

This is dedicated to my 10-year-old, “a danger on wheels.”  Apparently, it is possible to run over your own body part with the skate you are wearing. My little bruiser came off the rink muffling tears, applied ice to her left arm, then determinedly rolled back out for the last 10 minutes of rink time. Today, x-rays will show if she broke anything, besides my heart.
