Wiggly Teeth – v2

as the chime was passed,
purposely, around the circle
sharing our days
our most  important news

a recurring theme
breathed into the world
shared, excitedly,
a giggly word

Wiggly teeth
in glee, in wonder,
so many teeth
so many treasures

the Tooth Fairy had better
stock up on quarters,
because Pembroke children
will soon have teeth under pillows
