Cracking Eggs

I used to be afraid
To crack eggs against
The rim of a mixing bowl —
Baking or making pancakes
Was a difficult task,
Loath to let the egg guts gush
Everywhere —
Unable for a while
To create the delicious finished
Cooked food, and smile.


This quadrille, containing the word “crack” is based on a true story. However, I am glad to report that I am no longer afraid to crack eggs! It’s kind of an embarrassing story, but it makes me glad that just about anything can become inspiration for a poem.
