Bye Teeth

another tooth torn from my mouth

another sleepless night

another two weeks barely eating

another taste of steel blood

 

I should have done better

taking care of my jewels

coughing ivory every other dentist visit

precious

piano keys

dangling from a necklace 

or being kept in a jar

a drawer

someone’s collectable

 

they’ll dig up my bones

find no smile

just a single tooth

invent a story

another Brontosaurus will be born
