…what if your teeth were inside my pocket, a sad bracelet but also one which I liked?
…what if you removed your teeth for me, gently of course, though of wild personal inconvenience?
i don’t think i’d like you so much if you didn’t have teeth.
i like your current teeth. in your current mouth.
it’s something i think you should have, in that location.
there are things that i think i should have, too.
A few of your teeth, for example. in my fist.
i’ve never wanted that before.
this is my first time.
