Tooth mountain

The legend says that the giant was so furious he ripped a handful of stone from the top of the mountain and hurled it into the sea. But as children, they told me, they always thought the broken crest looked more like their gap-toothed smiles.

I turned to the water and squinted against the sun, trying to spot the missing tooth where it sat slanted into the waves.
