NaPoWriMo: Day 3

I had a few stubborn teeth
as a cub scout-aged kid
that threatened never to come out.

My dentist took X-rays
of my overbiting jaw
when I was nine [going on ten]–

I lack several adult teeth
from the day I was born,
so the next logical step

would be to pull out those
orphaned, anchoring pearls
before they fused to the bone.

Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
