Dentistry

The tooth bones connected to

the jaw bones connected

to the cheek bones

connected to the nose

bones connected to

a head that's aching.


The gums hurt

with inflammation

where the metal went

with drill and

needles scraping.


Grateful for the

mouth repairs but

still can't help

complaining.
