In Sybil Pitman Estess' poem "Mastodon Teeth," the teeth most likely represent _______________, and the implication is that _________?
a. the unknown/nothing is knowable
b. monsters/monsters are self-created
c. nightmares/violence is pervasive
d. fear/fears are short-lived
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I believe the answer is d. fear/fears are short-lived. The end of the poem suggests that the the mastodon was once feared but now all that remains are some teeth and bones.
