unhinged

unhinged

on the outside
knock
knock
jokes 
punch lines

through
doors

hauling right;
then left
    behind

on a stepping
stone path
stooped
over. 

riddles play
hopscotch
with 
dead-end
sobs

twisting
linty fingers
with keys
that tickle,
     tease,
     and swing

high,
     then low:     
     pushing
     and pumping

air
between
her legs
