Tiffany tooth fairy

Tiffany tooth fairy

Iconic blue, ribbon silk white,
milk teeth heaven from boys
cut free, displaced the ring
of eternity, enamel pearls
enshrine her heart, memories,
of children fill the gap.

Time on my hands

Time on my hands


Wringing palm around back of hand

in motion perpetual, time sticks with

precision ticks, thumb pendulum faux

Swiss, marches up the length of Grandfather

and strikes behind the face to tock.

Hands of time play his clockwork mind,

ticking out thoughts within, making mischief

behind those marble eyes before the day tick

tocks away.
