Toothless Pain

It was fine
for a day after the extraction
but now it feels as if
someone is slowly
and excruciatingly
setting my jaw on fire

Apparently
I shouldn’t have laughed in the face of dental pain
and alerted the vengeful tooth demons
to my existence

Forgive me
vengeful tooth demons
for I dearly wish to be able
once again
to chew
on the right side
of my mouth
