teeth

by victor h. nguyen

not so perfect not even white teeth
my arms so thin and fragile
my eyes an ugly brown
the chords i play on my guitar
don't come out right

i will never have perfect teeth
my arms will always be weak
my eyes will be brown
and my chords will
be pathetic

try a million-dollar dentist
hire a personal trainer
buy expensive contact lens
take lessons from someone
equivalent to jimi hendrix

jimi hendrix...nevermind
who am i?
my teeth are fine
