Toothache

There are no poets
without toothaches
and a cigarette
and a drink

In pain

Afraid of dying
but not of death.

If you have a toothache
Get drunk
until the daylight
when the dentist opens

Wait politely for your turn
No one likes the imposers
that show up
to the emergency rooms
even if they’re dying.

Don’t be a hassle
Be a drunk.
