Catching big air

Annette Marie Hyder

Sunshine slides along the ice
he wears sunbeam skis
that leave trails of water
in his wake.

I see him with his big smile
and his retro Ray-Ban Wayfarers on
and just like that
I am skimming out the door.

(“Catching big air” is ski and snowboard slang for jumping off the snow: link to Ski and Snowboard Slang)
