It brings it back

IMG_1085 - Lomo Polaroid

It brings it back, it truly does
His ivory tooth nestled in the crease of my palm
Just before bedtime

Faintly concave, a tiny ceramic wedge
Jagged at the base where it broke off
And marked there with a spot of blood

In the morning: his gap-toothed pride and glee
Eyes bright with wonder and the good news he must share: 
"Look, a pound coin, see!"
