...wisdom and teeth...

if the lesson is not learned
then rinse rather repeat

we cannot help you if
you do not ask for help

thirty times a day
the time strikes timid

forty times a day
the tongue darts tough

differentiation isn't coincidence
incidence is never dental

or oral for that matter
but wisdom and teeth

cracked as they may be
seek truth and truisms

over bullshit, con-jobs,
ignorance, or fountains

of youth, gardens of adherence
to single paths, monosyllabic

lines of cocaine and zombies
that partake. The day is long

enough as it is. We don't
need to write any longer

than we should.
