Teeth with Names

Not sure why She names her teeth

Though her front tooth did earn

a name with a story worth naming

That tooth was

The Shark Tooth

Lost beside the million gallon tank

at the Monterey Bay Aquarium


The Bloody Tooth

for obvious reasons

And this morning as her other front tooth

wiggles crooked she decides it is

The Right Tooth

because it kinks to the right

Not the left

Hopefully it will not become

The Bloody Tooth Two

Child's Island

Her Play
