My Beads


My beads
Each the same
Lose one
Wear again.

My teeth
Each size
Lose one
Compromise

My eyes
Bold twins
Lose one
Then begins

Quick decay -
One voice
Lose it
No choice

Leaves one
Just will
Lose it
All's
Still.

    How many times have poets referred to teeth as pearls, and how refreshing to think of them as beads, strung, broken, restrung and worn again. Love it! Linda (Report) Reply
