dentist visit

moments after a root canal i asked
will you tell me the igneous truth
a raincloud of details shaken into 2 million porous afterthoughts
dripped into a green-blue sea of conclusions:
the nurses began,

“we removed the tooth and then we kept digging

there’s a well in your mouth deeper than your own pie hole.”

i just remember to stick to the script:
“i floss sometimes (never) and
i try to avoid sweets.”
