Poem: Girl on a Longboard

Girl on a longboard
Rolling across the street
Sailing on a skateboard
With firmly-planted feet
Long straight hair is flowing
Sunglasses, large and black
Shirt proclaiming she’s a geek
As she surfs over sidewalk crack
The whole world is looking gray
Like the stone that’s all around
She flows through it, like a breeze
As wheels turn on the ground
Across the street and down the way
Now does she go on
Like a hint of a remembered dream
Suddenly now gone
