Tuesday Morning Poem

Faith’s Cavity

Faith is the slight stalk clutching tight the baby tooth
to its root. If it won’t let go, a father might tie a string
and slam the door. A mother might calmly let it fall
among the bedclothes while the child sleeps. Some
find coin beneath a pillow once it’s gone. But what
promises the child another truth will descend
from this cavity to fill the hollow?
