I've got some more upbeat poems, but a day of the dentist (remind me to use this as a title) is not an upbeat day. Although, I confess, I adore my dentist. She's the greatest. I highly recommend moving to my city so you can use my dentist.




Death came toward me today

wearing an eighty year old woman.

She was so kind, saying,

Oh, you've lost your kitty

I'm so sorry.

And I said thank you, wanting to add,

and I'm so sorry that you look and sound

like death, that your shadow scares me

and I don't know how you persevere

with those empty eyes, that fig of face

and filling a house-tent way too short

to reach those shuffling vein-bulged feet.

I wanted to say that at least the cat

can enjoy a few tiny murders before

his own in the sweet smiling sun, not

dwelling on life's villainous vestments

endlessly weaving, finally de-weaving.

Instead I stapled another flyer and

turned from the yard sale,

complimenting Death on her handbag,

afraid she'd open it.

Awww, not exactly a day in the sun huh?? I go Monday afternoon and already I am cringing at what will be found. Nice style of writing as you explore the human spirit...

Be always safe,

I always find your writes intriguing, Juli. There certainly is a certain "je ne sais quoi" about your style and what you express. My dentist is great but the cute dental hygienists (like Ginny for example) do most of the work for him (which I must say I do not mind at all). Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,

I like the way this one used exageration and humor to make such wonderful images that spring from the page.

Julie, I've been waiting for you to return with another of your
studied looks at the human condition. And you did, with a vengeance.
You write with a bitter pen, Julianza, and you do it so beautifully.
I admire your honesty. But more than that, your incredible talent.
If this is what results from a visit to your adorable dentist, perhaps I should vist your town to have a check-up. AF-gene.
