Ice Skating

Wobble, wobble, throw out the
hands and
one leg keens backwards,
one stays sturdy and
steady, now,
you’ve been through this before and
both feet down,
ankles bucking at the hardware but
we’re going forwards, at least,
and we haven’t fallen yet,
haven’t fallen yet,
though there’s a woman over there doing
spins and skips and laces
we’re content here with our wobbling and
going a little faster every moment,
skating a little stronger every pass.
