Silly Girl

I have a weakness for tattoos and a foul mouth.
You know the ones –
cocky as hell, dirt under their fingernails
as they flip off  a cop, the ones who tag walls
and break into abandoned buildings –
the ones my mom can’t condone,
but understands their appeal.

The scent of sweat
mixed with stale smoke
has become a cologne to me.
I’m always
the only girl
lost among
dirty skaters.
I sit off to the side
always excited
we haven’t been arrested yet.
