Friend’s Toothfairy Poem

The most dangerous game
Is Tooth Fairy
A terrible bargain
In your moist palm
A Sacagawea
Under his pillow
A shard of bone
And if, at the wrong moment,
You cough
Or a nightmare wakes him
Or the dog growls
Or, or, or . . .
Then magic absents itself
From yet another world
Maybe his
But most certainly yours
