A Song About Eggs…Or Metaphors…

20 Aug
Come on over here
crack my head
across the counter
watch the shell fall
like Humpty fell off the wall
And now that my yolk
is dripping down my sides
in come the flies
with their microscopes
magnifying misplaced hopes
So you thought you caught a bad egg
well I guess that’s how I hatched
and nothing’s transluscent
beauty’s dented
like the oyster shell
like the matted opal
you never can tell
And now that my yolk
is dripping down my sides
in come the flies
with their microscopes
magnifying misplaced hopes 

 

Peel me too soon
I shatter in my glass room
and the voice that was mine
rings truest to you
