Roller Coaster (Monday Poem)

by Nikki Grimes

Say "roller coaster,"
and I squeeze my eyes tight,
dig my fingers into
the safety bar
as we climb six stories,
then speed down again,
faster than my screams
can carry.
As soon as we reach
the end of the ride,
I'm the first to yell,
"Do it again!
Do it again!"
