"Skateboarding" - A Poem

This is the first place Frankie was ever published - his middle school literary magazine.

In a lot of ways it was one of his best received works - a poem entitled,  "Skateboarding".

Years later, he'd have to admit to himself that the poem was a sham - used as a way to engratiate himself into the fold of the skater/BMX kids.

The unabridged poem appears below.
