The Importance of Teeth in Happy Living

teeth are better when they are in your mouth
than in a dentist’s pliers like C’s tooth was today,
or ground away, only to disappear into
the vacuum in the dentist office, like S’s tooth.
and so they spend the rest of their day in a grimace,
grumbling at having to eat ice cream for lunch and dinner,
or only being able to drink ice cold margaritas.
