eternal teeth

beautiful girl

looks at the old man talking to me

and asks sotto voce

am i going to have teeth like that?

i say no

but think about the other answers

like pedantic–

that’s why you should always brush your teeth!

pragmatic–there are no guarantees, but let’s hope not dear…

agnostic–I don’t know, dear

metaphysical–every tooth, like every snowflake, blade

of grass.

is differentiated

but the Absolute is undifferentiated

eternal

the author and finisher

of all teeth
