NaPoWriMO 2018: Day 14- Dreamed of a Dentist? This is what it means

dream1

Dream dictionaries have been around as long as people have had dreams. Interestingly, if you consult a few of them, they nearly always tend to have totally different things to say about specific objects or symbols. Dreams, unlike words themselves, don’t seem to be nicely definable! At any rate, today’s prompt is to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary. Pick one (or more) of the following words, and write about what it means to dream of these things:

Teacup  Hammer  Seagull  Ballet slipper Shark  Wobbly table  Dentist  Rowboat

I chose the word “Dentist” for this challenge. Because that’s whom I’ve been thinking of since last fortnight, day and night. Why? You’ll know. At the end of the poem:)


 

Did you say you dreamed of a Dentist?

Well, let’s see now,

What do we have here….

Ok… here it is… the connotation

The teeth, a sign of your reputation

And the doctor, your aspiration

Or it could also mean,the public perception

The meaning based on a permutation,

a combination

Of…

the state of your pearlies and…

the expression on his face and what he holds in his hand.

Did he carry a scalpel? Did he come across as surly?

These are the options, nothing to worry

Good Teeth, Bad Doc

Run out, don’t walk

Reputation’s at stake

Beware of a snake

Bad teeth, Bad Doc

Run out, don’t walk

No more talk

Of those pearlies, take stock.

Did he have a mirror? Did he appear to smile?

That’s a great sign. I’ll tell you in a while

Bad Teeth, Good Doc

Open your mouth. Knock, Knock

Baby, time’s up

You gotta have a clean-up!

Good Teeth, Good Doc

Run, Don’t walk

Make the dream, real

The dentist’s a steal!

That’s the  gist

of the dream of a dentist.
