Daily Prompt: Cavity

cavity social poem

cavity
like the one in your chest
just because they said you were resisting arrest
cavity
like the ones in your teeth
leading to extraction cause you can't afford to treat
cavity
like the ones that get searched
by the ones that never put your dignity first
cavity
like the way your stomach feels
when you gotta choose between your rent and your meals
cavity
like the one violated
by somebody who said they loved you, but couldn't be sated
cavity
like the growing divide
between knowing they told the truth, and knowing they lied
