Feeling The Bite

If every part of the body
Received the professional attention
Garnered by our teeth,
We’d all be in the poorhouse!

From general dentist
To endodontist
To periodontist and back
I've been bouncing like a pinball
While my banker keeps the score.

Dreams of travel,
New cars, home repair
Recede from my sight
Like mirages

As I contemplate
The specter of
An entire life
Lived to support
My teeth!
