Fangirled over your Amazon jamming, all of your strength and sweetness of a scaled back hit,
as you transferred to the league I went off for injury, admiring your ongoing track mastery.
Shared worlds of roller derby and reading, you with your denim jacket poetry pocket,
my leather one collared by your all-star team pin. An outdoor skate as a first date,
your strategies for going down a hill on a busy trail backwards, to fear less and fall forward,
correcting my stance and giving edging tips, off balance by all of your prowess and grace.
