..teeth..

we have doubts regarding decisions
then friends remind us

as to
the things that are precious, valuable
and are not the things that our present
culture dictates

there is an insidious voice wheedling
created by the current clime, media
&
all sorts

and not of liquorice
that will be nice and tasty
turning my teeth black &
a need to check in the mirror

do not eat so many now
on furlough and mainly buying
necessities

except the perfume candle, bath oil
and pecan
nuts

that people revere gold as you cannot
eat nor breath it
it will not keep you alive

though I know personally
it is useful in wound dressings
and also in teeth

though my fillings
are cheaper stuff

apologies for mentioning those
as I know yours are sensitive just
now and bothering you

i have no edges really
you see, mine is not a
real lawn as in the accepted
sense

I live in the country
