In the Morning

The tooth fairy collects my wisdom teeth during a drug-induced sleep. Now I am only allowed to eat pureed beets with a rubber spoon. I vomit in red and eat through the walls of my bedroom. Break my teeth on my down duvet. Catch up on swim club anime Mid-race Haruka makes me cry, Oxycodone type of high. my ceiling breathes with me, through one nostril, the other is plugged with pus, and mucus, fills my cheekbone, behind my eye My mouth sticks dry, tongue tastes my own blood In the graves where my teeth once stood.

Mahaila Smith found a piece of horse mandible, teeth included: they were much bigger than her own.
