He smiled slyly
And I could see the names
Running through his head
Tin grin 
Metal mouth
My pink lips revealing
A slither of silver
I caught my tongue
Before I said something I shouldn’t 
Braced myself for the onslaught
But it never came 
He saw the steely glint in my eye
And thought better of braving my teeth
