He asks

September 16, 2012

Boy asks how teeth work
I tell him they are hard and sharp
And work together like scissors
I show him the straight hard lines of steel
Incisors on paper

I tell him they cut together
Need each other

In my mind I think
knives
He asks, knives?
Yes. A knife will cut a thing into jagged pieces
We would not want them in our mouths

Our mouths
Beautiful machines,
God.
