Pretty good flosser

Home again with clean teeth.  As I sat in the chair, closed eyes, mouth open, I considered what possibilities the day contained.  I found out that I am a pretty good flosser, which, in the land of my birth, Minnesota, is as good as it gets.

In the dentist’s chair
All I have to do is
Close my eyes,
Open my mouth,
Hear how my flossing
Pretty good
Over the last six months.
I consider
The world of teeth
For a brief time,
Return home with teeth
My tongue now finds
I return home
With the words
That I
Am a pretty good flosser.
Really I know
The tooth cleaner
Says that
To most everyone.
