Sixteen: Acid Wash Woman

Cut out the middle tooth, acid wash lips grinding with unspoken words.
Fall out, you stupid girl, fill this gap you pretend you don’t have. Worse,
the wisdom whittles, rotting secrets in the cave of your mouth. Wait.
Remember that everything you cannot say, will be extracted, wishful
in their desire that you would man up, be a woman, and say what
you need to say.
