Re-Filling

Re-Filling

“I always need two shots,”
I tell her as she puts the Novocain in
But she doesn’t believe me and soon starts in
On the old filling, the old cavity.
And there’s the old pain.
Instruments sticking out of my mouth like a cartoon shout,
All I can do is wince.
“Oh,” she says, “You do need two shots!”

Newly numb, she opens up that hole for real,
Until it’s an echo of my gaping mouth
Held open by force. What could be more vulnerable?
It always feels to me
Like the closest moment in ordinary life
To death: choke me, suffocate me;
It’d be easy.

I think about you as I try to relax my hands
And then work up to my shoulders: let go.
I can’t feel pain now, but I can feel the threat.

Doesn't do squat for me either. One shot, two shots. I should take a couple of shots of tequila before I go to the dentist.

They give me gas on top of the shots and it still doesn't help. They even turn the gas up all the way and give me multiple shots and it doesn't help.

I have a high tolerance. :? Could explain why I can out-drink most of the men I know. :wink:

i have valium before i go to the dentist for anything more than teeth-cleaning. the dentist prescribed it for me after my first 'extraction' visit, when she realized that i wasn't lying when i said i was a screamer. i TRIED to warn her. bet i freaked out folks in the waiting room first time round, before i got the script for valium. :)

Not Dr. Winik. I will be so sad when I finally get kicked off my mother's health insurance and I will have to see someone who is not Dr. Winik. The very thought makes me want to get my teeth cleaned every day between now and December 31st.

My orthodontist was not a bastard. My 15-year-old-self found him to be extremely hot. His name was, appropriately enough, Dr. Horner. Even my mom thought he was hot.

Okay, he might have been a bastard, but he was a hot bastard.
