Like Baby Teeth

By Montserrat Vargas

Translation by Sandie Luna

The body of what was once my mouth feels resentment

it doesn’t know how to lick like it once did

it’s afraid it dodges

avidly building itself again in the coming and going around an unknown abyss

avid and parched

with my tongue between my lips a nd my lips bitten by my teeth

this body of what once was…

wants now to relish everything

completely and without scars

“Let my teeth to fall out one by one!” I say

this body of what once was… will not resent it.



Since February, 2016 Montserrat is currently publishing her multidisciplinary work at ViceVersa Magazine
