Such Summer Fun

An old video, copied from an old film, shows me attempting to roller skate with the Sterino kids. I remember laughter, and perhaps some encouraging words from Debbie. She, with her long, thick brown hair and contagious smile, had taken me on as another kid brother.

And I remember the feel of the driveway on my hand as I fall.

summer heat
the clap of wheels
on blacktop
