TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint)

Man created holidays in his own image—
Lazy afternoons with sunbeams dripping in through dusty windows
Like wax dripping from eight or nine candles
(depending on which part of the world you’re from)
Are perfect allegories for the human condition
(if you want to call it that)
When all of us need a break from the work-a-day world
That binds and chains us
And creates tension in our jaws while we sleep
