The skater

How clean and fine

the ice spray

from the toe-pick

lifting the skater up

and around and

around again.

The blade inscribes

a long, cursive "i"

marking the turn,

the time when facing

forward shifts to facing back.

Coming or going

the skater leaves the same line

on the ice. It is all in the facing.
