Wisdom Teeth

As determined pillars of wisdom

jut up through my jaw

in crazy angles,  I slide my tongue

over my gum, landscaping

the daily migration

of these razor-edged pearls.

I know they are not

where they should be-

an orthodontist would wail

-but they are mine, glorious

in their gritty ascent.

My sneer-smile stretches wide

so all can see, and when I speak,

my words gnash fresh between

baby T-Rex teeth.
