Artist's Description

“WISH WE HADN’T, OH MY $#@*& TOO LATE!!!”

“The Roller Coaster

I step into the car
a stomach flutter
a thought of regret

The bar comes down with a thud
The climb starts its way
creaking and climbing
bemoaning our fates

“I want to get off!” my whole being screams

Over the hill we go with a crack and a whoosh
accelerating
speeding
sliding
slipping
and rushing
clattering and
clunking.

and then rest,
Tick – tick – tick-

The climb starts again
a heart flutter
and a whistle
and in one breath we dive
into the curve -

whirling
whipping
winding
and back down

The wheels start grinding and turning
a gasp and

Brake
We stop
It’s over

- and back into line …"
