teeth twine on all fours

I dream the dream I dreamt when I was younger –
and still today
it’s not reoccurring but it’s there –
I’m running along the street on all fours
like a big cat
I pound along past shops and shoppers –
another dream and I’m choking on a piece of twine
i grab it between thumb and forefinger and pull it
and pull it
and I can feel it coming up
and the twine gets longer
and longer
but it never ends and I keep pulling
covered in saliva
my teeth hurt then they fall out
and my tongue dips into bloody sockets –
the geography of my mouth

I awake and am never sure if I am
