6:20 this morning
I woke from my snoring
to get myself ready
and hold myself steady.
A 7:00 a.m. cleaning, poking
and scraping, drilling and
chipping following by some
gaping tooth hole filling.
A root canal was the need
for what made my gums bleed.
It sounds wicked and painful but
I’ve had worse and more baneful.
So now I sit in my cube tasting
the foul cement, hating
the bitterness and hoping I can eat.
And that would be… a dream feat.
Now I will digress from this lame poetry,
Writing about dental work is beneath me.
- Wow, that took me half an hour to scribble out. And it’s terrible. But I hope you enjoy it to some degree my dear reader.
Yes I did have a root canal this morning and it really wasn’t all that bad. I have a great dentist and I’m super happy we got this little problem taken care of. It was my last left sided molar and apparently I need it to mash my food up into swallow size.
I can’t stress it enough; take care of your teeth.
The Fourth of July is being celebrated this weekend and most of my office will be closed tomorrow, unfortunately I will have to be in the office. So I’ll have more on the Fourth tomorrow. Aren’t you excited by that? I hope so.
