On Riding a Trike in the House

Tricycles tied together,
I was being towed in circles
around the unfinished attic.
When the rope untied itself
I was approaching the top of the steps.
Over and over,
tricycle and little girl
tumbled down the stairs together.
We landed on the bottom step,
my trike and I.
After a trip to the doctor
and a few stitches
I got a whole string of suckers.
When I got home I kicked my trike.
