The joys of flossing

I am a flossing zealot
partly for the minty efficiency of it
but mostly because it requires no strategy
no long-range planning
no nuance
no pitch

it is just a piece of string
that gets the food
from my teeth

and the taxi driver said to me today
nothing is simple anymore

it was rhetorical
and he was in gridlock
so it wasn’t the time
to point out
that some things are still simple
you just have to remember
to notice.
