a haibun (prose mixed with haiku)



have your jaws popped and now seem not to go back in place?
do they hurt at the hinges? does something feel wrong?
you might have 'tmj.'
loss of bone/severe arthritis of the jaw bone.
you might want to have a checkup at a 'tmj' clinic or ask your dentist--
tho some do not know about it.
to let it go might lead to surgery and/or wiring of mouth.
