Fast and Slow: (A Schoolroom Tragedy)

tongue_tieI have a new student who cringed and reported

That his danged ol’ tongue’s tongue-tied.

His frenula’s dead at the base of his head–

Jaws gooed with tung oil inside.

I fillip’d my fingers and threw the rue off, but his

Filose-y tongue cords had died.
