Chewed and ripped;
A replacement for spearmint gum,
With flaking red that tastes of bloody plastic and
Compulsive behaviour initiated by nerves.
– One can tell a lot about a person’s disposition –
Blunt and square,
It takes a strong grip to trim these
Calcium hardened protectors
Whose dents originate from mis-placed hammer strikes.
– Their profession –
Raptor curves and long, cruel points
Weapon-worthy and ready
To gauge eyes and scratch through skin,
They glint fiercely in the metallic light.
– Their character –
Clear varnish reflecting;
Distorting innocence into a façade
Of decadence destroyed and humility
A rule-endorsing individual.
– Revealed from underneath the calcium rims –
