ORAL HEALTH ALERT
(12/6/18)


another
trip
to the dentist

another
tooth gone

what
will he take
when there
are no more
teeth?

beside
my money

"what happened
to your arm?"

someone
will ask
while looking
at a limbless
sleeve

"periodontal
disease"

I will
answer

"you had
better
keep flossing"

I'll warn

"or this
could happen
to you"
