Roller Rink Nostalgia
pining for something that doesn't exist
was it what I saw in a movie
or heard about as a child
A life spent searching for this one thing
I can never put my hands on.

just round and round

I know the place existed
although it is abandoned now.
the neon glow no longer flickers
the painted sign cracked

no direction

rows of brown and orange skates
and then...lacing up my rentals
waiting for our song
elated with the disco lights

going round and round

Remember when we shared a pizza
sipped out of two straws
in the same Slush Puppy?
She held my hand

She held my hand
