Between two teeth

Catch the hem of a dress,
between two teeth, sow in a button
Chew on an apple,
at the back near the molars
Clench onto the secrets before they slip out
leave them hanging, caged  like a wild tiger inside
this is how other people use their teeth
we, we use our teeth differently,
not out of cannibalism, or fierce love of leafs
in our front teeth, they shine, gold plated bullets
stopped, right before they are sent for the brain
to explode.
