RETRO REPROBATE
(1/15/19)


back
in the dentist's
chair

bone graft
this time

to bolster
the jaw
for an implant

another
consequence
of the decades
of drinking
neglect

oddly
enough
they're playing
classic rock
over the
PA system

the same
music
to which
I consumed
mass amounts
of alcohol
in the past

I'm not
sure
what the message
is there

but I still
like
the music
