Mortal Failings

i toss brick feet up and
tuck my tongue

for a few blinks and
breaths a day,

overbite so pronounced
the jaw won’t sit
quite right,

restless maybe need
to shake it or
twist up

so blood won’t
curdle

or rust to the ins
of heart’s
veins,

it’s mortal failing
to give up-

or give in to
a fleeting
pain.
