Toothless

First loose tooth.
Will it hurt?
Worry, wonder, crying when the newness is too irresistible and it can’t stop being explored.
Wiggle, jiggle, jaggle-toothed smile.
Impatience with waiting-and-seeing,
no apples for a while.
05:39. It’s out!
Clutched in a sticky palm,
shown-off to bleary-eyed parents with pride.
What happens now?
Does the Tooth Fairy give Pokemon cards?
Delight peeks out through a gapped, gaping grin.
