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
I participated at Spring Under the 7, a poetry event created by Libreria Barco de Papel, where I performed part of La Mordida Poetry.
