Dolls

All dolled up … nowhere to go …
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
A doll, a trinket—
where shall we hide these strange gifts
from her prying eyes?
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
The countertop doll
would dance with zest if she could—
elusive music.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
a porcelain doll
without a stitch of clothing—
enigmatic smile
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
the road into town
where he hopes to win a doll
at the carnival
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
traveling circus—
the man with the kewpie dolls
shoves pins into one
