i ground my molars
into bonemeal

emptied my skull
and planted flowers
where the crows
used to nest

i wanted life
between my temples.
my jaw is always sore because i constantly grind my teeth

Very grisly, but beautiful at the same time. Well done!

I used to do this a lot. Still do sometimes when I'm experiencing stress. I like the second strophe. Emptying your skull is at times a necessity.

Love the way you expressed a physical ailment but made it sound so beautiful and with meanings that go beyond the grinding of your teeth!
