yearly check up

Cavity

he hollows out her sockets with a dry hum of electricity

Her giggles feel like cold snow on cheeks or like Nitris warming your stomach for takeoff

She came to forget the poison they would soon remove

so she leans back in her chair

and breathes

Soon, everything else tingles around the edges of her vision like a daydream

And she is lost to the dentist office on 15th Street while they begin.
