“Night Music” by Joe Fassler, recommended by Electric Literature ...

“Everyone’s suspicious of dentists. Our masks scare people. We look at parts of you that you yourself can’t see. And when our fingers play with things inside your mouth, we violate a dark, stone-age taboo that still lurks somewhere within us. The civilized mind thinks: ‘It’s okay, I’m only at the dentist.’ But the caveman brain hisses, ‘Don’t fuck with my teeth.’”
