Roller Grrl – A Poem

woman in roller skates leaning on wall


Roller Grrl

A bubble-gum sneer and
socks up to skinned knees,
not scuffed solely from tumbles.
The unbashful bruises bared
are born of tight-curved speeding
and unpadded, wild rides,
hip-whipping, hard jamming,
climaxing in the
spills she loves most.
She’s trundled over a score of
polished boards and eager hearts
rolled back to her feet,
gravel-grazed and grinning,
blocking shame at every bend.

Cameron Lincoln 2017.
