The headache that started off small
Grew bigger. Sat down
in the upper right section of my head and
I believe it has to do with
my visit to the dentist this afternoon.
Holding my entire body rigid for thirty minutes
while the dental tools roamed around
picking digging and having a great old time
nosing out the flaws among
my selection of tired weak teeth and
prodding all the spaces and gaps and
scratching at the enamel and
It was just too much.
A horror movie
could be filmed with great success
inside that pleasant-looking
converted former home
turned palace of fear.
The headache stretches out its legs and settles itself.
