The Arithmetic . Every tooth has a number Every extraction subtraction Vices accumulate Like amalgam . Voids filled with mercury Each addition dentition Lacking warranty Like life . But sweets Oh sugar How I crave decay Like solitude . Adding and subtracting Point above line Line above all Like drawing . Zero and infinity Buying today’s cavities With tomorrow’s candy Like a boss . It adds up . . —————- by Doodleslice 2018-07-16 #poem #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poems #artist #atlanta #atlantapoets #atlarts #poetsofig #poets
