Bathroom Reverie

Updated: Mar 21, 2019

Tonight I’m brushing your teeth with unusual

Focus

There is no world beyond your molars

Your baby incisors.

No politics no fretting about the task list

The foam forming in your mouth

Is where I’m at entirely

Careful around your wiggly tooth

As you squirm and pitch

White foam building

ready to spill over the dam:

Your plump glistening lip

The reverie finishes

I kiss your cheek

And say

“Go spit”


 

About Me

"Not all those who wander are lost" - JRR Tolkinn

I think of myself (as well as aspire to be) a curious person. Curious in a book store, but also curious exploring a new city or meeting a new person. Curious in planned and unplanned moments. In an era where knowledge about the world is both vast and deep, curiosity occasionally strikes me as anathema to expertise. Or, more accurately, if you are curious, best to be curious about some very specific topic. But so far at least, that does not seem to be my path. My professional work is orientated towards start ups as well as international development.

In 2019 I decided to make a more concerted effort to write - hence this site. My blog focuses on science and technology, health research and education. My fiction is of the speculative variety - Science fiction that uses scientific ideas to explore human experiences. Thanks for reading!
