The Dentist

Memories of the metal contraption
entering my soft, vulnerable mouth
grinding up inside my brain.
Tightening to brace each
rhythmic sear of pain. 
Captured, tortured.

Sixty years pass and the
fear is coffined in my veins
in spite of the jolly Glaswegian man,
who is so kind and whom I cannot understand.
