Poetry Circus: How do you like your Fried Egg? V.2


Marilyn Monroe by De Kooning. 

How do you like your Fried Egg? Version Two


Inside porous egg
shell breaks open in-
to frying pan.  

Nevertheless, which way to go:
Hard Boiled for detectives on the go.
Scrambled like my head.
Poached for all of us imperials.*
Sunny side up 
running jollily around my plate
Egg yolk sits,
atop my broth.

Never-the-less, 

If the egg is cracked from the outside

death surely comes.

If the egg is cracked from the inside


then life renewed.

(A) Hen's egg  - 
cracks open.

Rooster shouts,
"Amazing!
Our Egg!"

Nevertheless 
Nevertheless, which way to go!

* Poached Egg made popular in India first - a jewel in the crown of England. Check out the Wiki Cook Book on Eggs
