Poetry @TORollerDerby #writerscircle

We went on a date to the Toronto Roller Derby. These are planned missions (ssshhh) on my part to philch, to eavesdrop, to see, to learn. Not only can these ladies skid with the best of them, they are poets. Check it out:

“The last time I saw her, she’d fallen and broken her teeth. So sweet, so cute.”

“It’s frustrating when you’re not the way you remember yourself being. You look really beautiful today.”Image

This is the gold that I swear is everywhere that I’m always encouraging students to take up on Art Dates. Roll on, Ladies!!
