Mohawk Boy

Six year old man rocks the mohawk of a rock star,
Confidently concentrates on his swagger strut
As he follows his dad around the airport terminal.

Thinking with my mother's brain I disapprovingly judge his parents
With my little sister's face, I smile and flash a thumbs up
My teacher's heart warms at his childfulness.

Outward appearance has an impact on everyone,
How much it matters to you makes you
Dress to impress, you or them.

Tooth Decay

Sweetheart,
Sugar pie,
Honey bun
Sweetie pancake,
Sugar plum
Hon muffin
Sweet cheeks
Sugar love
Honey bunch


Sweet,
Sugar,
Honey,


Mon chou
Mon sucre d'orge
I wanna taste your goodies,
Put some sugar on me,
Chocolate love.

Eats through the hard enamel epidermis,
drills through soft tissue, seeps down to nerve tissue till abscess forms.
Rotting away the very core of the heart.
