Its always necessary keep your teeth clean
A tooth (plural teeth) is a mignonne, calcified, whitish order start in the jaws (or mouths) of various vertebrates and habituated to to sever down food. Some animals, strikingly carnivores, also use teeth for hunting or owing defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but degree of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
The ordinary design of teeth is alike resemble across the vertebrates, although there is sizeable variation in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals get esoteric roots, and this figure is also create in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, manner, the teeth are spoken for to the outer rise of the bone, while in lizards they are fond of to the inner interface of the jaw alongside the same side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are seconded beside rough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.

This poem caught my eye and ear -- lured me into its lurid teasing innuendos with red images of roosters becoming "cocks" of the penile persuasion; catchy driving rythm, action and words that stand in relief off of the page with their very musical juxtaposition. The rise and fall, hard to soft, and battle to peace images mirroring the sex act were particularly successful. I do not know her work but want to read more. I wonder if it is significant that it is written in the 70's -- the sexual, rousing slightly naughtiness. It works for me -- but its weak parts were shown very eloquently by Mr. Penkwitz who commented here (above) last month. Reading Mr. Penkwitz together with the poem again was quite illluminating. I want to read more of Anne Sexton's work. What does Mr. Pinkwitz recommend? What are some poems by other poets Mr. Pinkwitz finds meet his exacting aesthetics?
