in dentistry, a tooth with deep roots
the dentist drills, cracks, pulls, and maybe even burns-
and then there is a space- where the tooth had been
impacted- squished, pushing against each other
eye contact minimal; everyone tired
the buses were late again – filled to capacity
impacted-4 sardines glistening in a can
broiled, smoked, add a little mustard
pack em in- eat em up, but if you really want to make an impact
a little hot pepper for extra flavour and a strong impact
“she’ll blow it anyway” now how is it that with all the many ways to use the word
impact, why is the strongest hit the one with the word “blow” in it?
impact – to make an impression
to strike hard
the batter knocked that one out of the park- could you hear the impact?
Bang! now that was forceful
“so confined in its socket as to be incapable of normal eruption”- dictionary
Did you know? volcanoes erupt and then- oh the impact
lava everywhere, spewing forth like an – what is that word?
(really interrupts everything)
– We interrupt the regular blog with this attempt at sharing “dictionary poetry”
Did it have an impact?
Now you try 🙂
