Listen To Teeth

This weekend's Trifextra challenge is to use the word, tooth, in any way our little hearts desire except, that it not be about losing a tooth.  Ok.  Fair enough.  My entry is not about losing a tooth.


Listen to Teeth*

He kneels,
Tracing the familiar lines
Of this path well-travelled.

His partner unzips.

All lips and longing,
A master of tongue and tooth,

His tears dissolve
amid the rivulets
of this lover's dew.


                                                                            *"Listen to Teeth" is a line from this great song      
                                                                                called Lover's Spit by one of my favourite          
                                                                                Canadian bands, Broken Social Scene.
