English Engelska الإنجليزيّة

If you eat anything sweet
trolls will thrive on you teeth!
If you don't brush properly
trolls will cause holes!
They said when I was a child.

Life is full of boredom and
disappointment and loved ones
that dies and worries about
the ones that still are alive.
And yet we have to work.
Go to that same place every day.
While life slowly slides away.

All that anger – what to do with it?

There are no trolls.
As an adult, never
had my teeth any holes.
However: dental plaque.

There is a dental hygienist
that removes plaque from my teeth
that learned to direct all
the anger in life
to my mouth.
