7/12

does your body come apart like this? 

at first i thought it was hail
pinging off roof tops & car hoods.
i wear my bike helmet to walk out 
to the pine tree to ask the tree what we should do.
my life is a thinning glass window. i open my hand
to catch a fragment & find the sky is shedding teeth:
shark teeth & human teeth & rat teeth &
monster teeth. i open my own mouth in fear.
i count to check my teeth are all still there. 
lately, every moment i feel like i am losing
another part of my body. i gather as many teeth as i can
in a metal bowl in case one day i need them.
