Invisalign

the last time we were
intimate
I was wearing my braces,
which – unlike the
torture devices I wore
as a teenager,
nearly thirty years ago –
are now just
a thin sheath of plastic
to protect my teeth and
guide them to where
they’re supposed
to be. where’s the
equivalent device
for my heart?
