The waiting room is crammed with
carefully arranged
sticky nylon chairs.
Magazines clutter the coffee table,
amid ads for invisalign and whitening products.
False smiles and perfectly white teeth.
The name of the brand is Trés White,
which I find pretty ironic.
Don't mix French with English,
my teacher would say.
But I can kind of see why they did.
Very White,
in French,
translates to trés blanc.
I guess that doesn't sound quite as appealing
Who wants black teeth?
They have mastered the art of sounding
without actually being technically accurate.
Geez, I hope they don't have the same motto
For the actual product.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel
