In the holidays...
The 10th tooth
Light shone into my eyes, a metal strap was wrapped
around my tooth, a crunching sound was going on
inside my mouth. Suddenly it stopped and a man took
out a white blood stained object and replaced it with a
piece of cotton wool. It was over. I had lost my 10th
The sand crunched beneath my feet and the
wind blew against my face as I walked along the
beach. I lay down and let the soft, silky sand
slide beneath my fingers while I heard the waves
crashing against the shore. The salt, light as air
slipped into my open mouth. Children laughing
and screaming, jumping and playing while I sat
still as a stone, looking and listening.
