Your Gold Teeth, on album Countdown to Ecstasy, Steely Dan

 

 

 

                                          your gold teeth

                           among the bungalows
                           long on reclaimed land
                           all facing different ways
                                like jenga
                           with well-established hedges
                           defining their boundaries
                           but the power lines down
                                the lanes
                           crackle silent and black
                           under the high blue sky with
                           hints of lime smog
