Poem #310 of 365

strapped to a drip and drool napkin
i force my mind to conjure
some people,
challenged folk,
who can gain my sympathy
as i strain to forget
that i am in a dentist's chair

Aung San Suu Kyi

Benazir Bhutto

they are losing a country
they are losing their country
they are losing the battle for democracy in their country

and i am only losing a tooth.
one naturally-decaying
