Ode To My Teeth

.

My root canal

is dedicated to 1000 

candy bars 

and a truckload

of suckers, caramels,

Easter bunnies,

Christmas elves,

Halloween tricks,

Valentine's Day, pop,

taffy, Birthdays,

cupcakes, carnivals,

beet and cane sugar.

.

No ode to my teeth

can be complete

without honorable

mention to toothpaste.

Three times a day,

meant dumping

about half an ounce

of sugar wedged

between each tooth

for around let's say

sixty years when

a small dab was enough

twice a day.

.

My teeth and several

hundred dental visits

are a testament to

carbohydrates that 

break down into simple

sugars. 

.

Implants, caps, and dentures

are not real teeth, yet, owning

one, I live in dread that one

day I will own the others.
