I have long suspected my nerves are differently ordered.  Here's proof.

This morning the dentist told me
I am part of the 30 per cent.
The nerve
Under my right lower wisdom tooth
Runs in a different channel
Than 70 per cent
Of the world.
I am home now
Numb jawed.
I sip coffee
From the left side
Of my face,
Hope it makes it
Down my throat.
