Another subway poem

A Little Tooth by Thomas Lux is a very short one I noticed today on the subway after a post-call breakfast with Justin and his brother Nick.

The only thing I didn’t like about it is that the meter is a bit uneven…usually there are four iambs per line, but sometimes more, and other times the feet aren’t iambs at all. The subway car was in a near uproar about it this morning.
