good teeth

if i tell you of your bad teeth 
it is not for the moments of flawlessness I bear
no man is infallible...

it is not for the paints of super colours for my blackness 
i am black enough for colours...

i once had a bad tooth 
the pains...unbearable...

the shame is not a joke 
it cannot be hidden in the eyes of many blind accolades...

it is because i know 
when my teeth are good and yours too 
poetry is brave...

the world is brave.
