"C.R.E.A.M."


Strap up,
45 seconds of fun then two minutes of walking,
Uphill, didn’t do it right.
One more.
Strap up,
45 seconds of fun then two minutes of walking,
Uphill, not high enough.
One more.
But it’s never just one.
3 more.
4 more.
Then maybe lunch, if you’re lucky.
Same all afternoon, just on a different slope,
Put on repeat for each scene
No parties
No fame
No pay
The night is spent editing videos,
And charging cameras for sunrise shots
Tomorrow

The author's comments:
This poem is about when I was a sponsored rider filming snowboarding videos, and the grueling work and hiking that goes into every shot you might see in the finished product.
