Example text

24 • Fo r a Fath e r Remember after work you grabbed our skateboard, crouched like a surfer, wingtips over the edge; wheels clacketing down the pocked macadam, you veered almost straight into the neighbor’s hedge? We ran after you laughing, shouting, Wait! Or that August night you swept us to the fair? The tallest person boarding the Ferris wheel, you rocked our car right when we hit the apex above the winking midway, to make us squeal. Next we raced you to the games, shouting, Wait! ” But we’ve dreamt you’re just skating streets away, striding the fairgrounds toward a wilder ride.

One bridge to go; past its black arch, the river, fast that day, funneled into a froth; if we weren’t careful, we’d ricochet off squeezing rocks.
