Yawning is painful
Reluctant to chew and eat,
Too much discomfort.
Jaw ache forces meTo forget about COVID:Dentist appointment.
After three visits,Masks and hand sanitizer:Diagnosis time.
Machine surrounds me.NOT a pampering facial,The scanning begins.
The images showJaw arthritis is a thing -Why am I surprised?
Nobody 'owns' this,Now to fight the insuranceTo get some relief.
Martini diet?Maybe that is the answer -No chewing involved.
My day has brightened -
Cone flowers have opened up,
'Blazing Stars' are here.
Floating in the dark,
Coyote group howl delights,Comet's a no-show.
A deluge of rainAs I sleep my cares away,A comforting sound.
