Summer 2003   
Who skis whom?

So many seasons

riding my skis

round these round

& perfect arcs,

always believing

it was the skier,

not the skis, leaving

such pure marks

on empty snow.


How could I know

skis too have reasons

for the way they move?

For them too a round

& perfect turn

is magic.


     In love

with perfect turns

I failed to see

all these years

my skis

were skiing me.
