Poet's Corner: About the Teeth of Sharks

About the Teeth of Sharks

The thing about a shark is—teeth,
One row above, one row beneath.

Now take a close look. Do you find
It has another row behind?

Still closer—here, I’ll hold your hat:
Has it a third row behind that?

Now look in and… Look out! Oh my,
I’ll never know now! Well, goodbye.

John Ciardi (1916 – 1986)
