Things They Should Tell You

Things they never tell you
Are told nonetheless
Otherwise how would you know
That the cat shouldn’t eat
the night before his tooth pull
Do you fast before the dentist
removes that last chewing surface
Or feast to remember
the infinite pleasure of your own
dentition, your own way
of grinding down and feeling up
as immediate as waking to the world
as once was,  easy, whole, natural
all your bits and parts intact.
