A Bouquet For My Dentist


I dispatched a thank-you note       in floral guise
tender tulips       for a tooth whose days were numbered
delicate Afsoon!         most beautiful!    most wise!
through your skill       my dental life blooms unencumbered
 
gentle doc!            you who embody pearly youth
gratitude!       you deftly plucked my rotten tooth

“gentle doc! you who embody pearly youth gratitude! you deftly plucked my rotten tooth.” – And this note comes with a bouquet? You’re the first guy I know who wrote poems to his dentist to show gratitude. Sweet! To inspire you to write such a poem, he or she must’ve been a really great doc to you. - Lon
