Pencil me in for next Tuesday, the hole
It's widening, my love, and I'm not sure
What could fill it. My number is in the
Card I left for you. If you could respond
In a timely fashion before the rot
Has time to set in, that would be lovely.
The time and place is important to me
So please be sure to pick accordingly.
The pain is breaking through my soul now
You understand. So your undivided
Attention is worth more than gold to me
And I don't have much more gold to spare.
When we meet pretend that you don't know
Who I am. Just smile sweetly and ask
Who I am here to see. Pretend to look
At your book as if I didn't exist
But I do. Disinfectant in the air.
When will the dentist be ready for me?
