Teeth

At the river’s mouth is a city of teeth, filtered from sewer-water by a latticework of crisscrossing iron.

 

At the river’s mouth they collect the teeth, they polish them.

 

It’s odd, I know.

    Tooth collecting is definitely a unique activity.

  7. I kind of love this. What a creepy place. The word ‘latticework’ doesn’t get nearly enough usage. Thanks for linking up.

  8. What a wonderland of teeth. I’m curious who ‘they’ might be.
