My teeth

turning round and round

for biting its and eets

bite them

scare them off

snap my teeth

my blunt harmless teeth to scare away

 

White

yellow

straight

crooked

sharp

blunt

whole

cracked

my teeth my teeth

called pearly whites but neither pearl nor white

and he isn’t even that good

 

My vanity lies in my teeth

you

look at your face and your hair

but I

stare at my teeth

not pride

but curiosity

and that rather quite killed the cat

but my teeth aren’t of a cat’s

none but my own fill my mouth

the cracked sentinels of my tongue

soft and squishy and covered in blooming buds

 

The cold dries out my teeth my teeth

my little

too small teeth

say the word

tooth

teeth

tooths

teeths

just like geese
