Outskating Our Shadows, Levttown 1965

Saturday night on the strip.
We strap on our skates and roll free
from the bone-yards of broken families.
We tremble in sequined light:
In the semi-dark, our hands find each other
and we skate for miles in circles.
By the third lap, we have left the rink
for higher ground, pushing boldly
away from our shadows.
