An Annoying Sore Of A Poem - Poem by Alexandre Nodopaka

The rare times I eat steak
a piece of meat wedged between
two of my already sparse teeth.
It must've happened a few days ago
because I didn't feel it until
the soreness hit my mandibles..

Of course I immediately went
to the dentist to assess my fang problem.
At the same time I thought to have
a sort of mini-mouth remodeling
to improve on my yellowing smiles.
To my puzzlement the dentist

kept spewing numbers to his assistant
feverishly taking notes.
Now SHE was more than pretty
with a dazzling row of teeth
straight out of a Hollywood commercial.
That's exactly what I wanted I mumbled.

The final dollar tally, without delving
into the gory details was over 11k.
No wonder I love my over-the-border
compadres. For the money I would've spent here
it paid 6 months of vacationing over there
and had my teeth done to boot.

Sadly they all fell out 3 months
after I returned.
Well, this is just another poem
I ought to submit to Rattle
to the attention of Alan Fox.
Maybe at last I'll be published.
