Fine Tooth





FINE TOOTH

"When people say, "I don't read poetry because I don't understand it," I think, "Do you understand your sandwich? Do you understand combing your hair?"--W.S. Merwin 





FINE TOOTH


we must be kind because
almost everyone we meet

my hair is amazing
I understand my sandwich

we must be kind because
I understand my sandwich

almost everyone we meet
my hair is amazing

I understand my sandwich
my hair is amazing

almost everyone we meet
we must be kind
