They said I would need
something new,
a different approach,
meant to replace
who I was before,
like something
from another planet,
brought here
to save me
from decay.
Perfect, my
dentist said,
like nothing
you have ever seen,
we will make you over,
so when you awaken
and smile in the mirror,
you will not know
who you have been.
