After-effects

The numbness was wearing off on my gums first. So when poky things were happening to my disturbed nerve, things that were also rasping at my abraded gums, the gums were hurting but the tooth-nerve was not.

I have sore places now from assorted needle-stabbing.

But their temporary filling feels so much better than mine, and looks too. Thursday. Thursday. Thursday.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
