I haven’t skated in years… I need a nicer board too. Anyone got an old one I can have? Preferably a narrow one with some excellent wheels and bearings. #skateordie #toooldtoskate

Sui by Kim Addonizio

Sui


Little beautiful abused,
     cinder scrap caught
          in the updraft—


Needle thief,
     She Who Ironed Her Forearm Black,
          bone-bare (healed now —


nearly). Lovely
     girl burning in a glass,
          wick in a lake


that whitens
     opaque, blade-scored.
          Blued and grieving


you keep moving.
     Every time I open
          the box you gave me,


the little ballerina—
     glittering, indifferent,
          the size of a bullet—

unfolds.
     She stands, poised.
          If I turn the key


she’ll turn.
     Trapped on her stage
          with that killing music.
