Tail Slide

Tail slide the sidewalk sidewinder.
Some boy on a board,
This girl catching air.
I’ll stop you in your office tracks;
Turn quick, tic-tac
While you just stare.

I’m the flip side. The trick on track.
A backwards facing
Shove-off flipping cash
And if I stall the street bites back,
Curbed switch-blade teeth
Raw red road rash.
