The tooth can be difficult to face
chewing on one side of my mouth
During the most recent wave of the pandemic.
I had a royal catastrophy.
I broke a crown.
Not over the head of a monarch.
But instead over the remains of a mollar.
I’m chewing on one side of my mouth.
Though not quite the same as talking out of both sides of my mouth, I’m still concerned.
What will become of my aggression?
We humans are nasty aggressive animals.
We first make this experssion of aggression with our mouths.
Ask any massage therapist - or any osteopath for that matter - where do people hold their tension in their bodies.
The reply will be: “everybody’s different.”
And with some pressing, jaw tension will eventually be shared as an aswer.
Like I said, we humans are awful, violent, creatures.
Even as babies we have a capacity for cruelty.
Don’t belive me?
Ask any nursing mother.
They’ll tell ya.
Those nipples didn’t destroy themselves.
I haven’t been chewing on nipples.
With a toothache, I’ve been chewing on as little as possible.
And I’ve only been chewing on one side of my mouth.
I’ve been chewing tentatively, thoughtfully and hesitantly lest I bite my own tongue and have to deal with a mouth sore.
How do you deal with your aggression?
I know that this may be a difficult thing to swallow, but you destroy life in order to live. You, me and all of us? We take something that was living, beautiful and whole and pulverize it. We grind things down and mash them up before sending them into an acid bath where we extract what we can then pass the rest as waste.
So, you are inherently voilent and aggressive.
How do you deal with the violence that’s a necessary part of your humanity?
Still don’t think that you’re aggressive and violent?
