The Dentist

By Ivy Lunt

I’ve always relished going to the dentist--


the cold rooms and bright white lights


the jab of the needle

and bitter taste of Novocain. 


My teeth altered, repaired

but mouth still numb--


the hole I bore 

into my cheek.


The latex gloves I

request as a prize


I don’t want stickers

or gumball machine


treasures, just the gloves, 


Ivy Lunt is a second-year student at CVCC. She moved to Lynchburg in August, 2020, from her hometown of Mesa, Arizona.
