A wire stretches across the cage

Like prisoners incarcerated

Each tooth snared in its own little cell


Both prisoner and tooth

Stuck in there to be straightened out

And to be released in a year's time

    Wow I love the images they are so vivid in my mind! I'm also hopefully getting my braces off this summer and I am counting down the days!:)

      Any day now! Thanks for the feedback from one braces wearer to another, glad I could create such a vivid image for you.
