The Skateboard King

The skateboard king twirls his own  

tenuous tricks to the sound of 

one hand clapping alone

for his stupendous trove. 


Achilles looked on with envy 

cursing the arrow in his heel.

Paris smiled silently

at the shimmering seal.


The King’s last one slick snare

failed and bailed out to one

bright Pleiades in mid-day flare.

All clapping was finally done.
