The Omelet


The Omelet

I unbroke that rotten egg
right before it dropped
into the bowl thus saving
the omelet.

It was just a fevered dream
that my fellow voters
insisted they loved the smell
of sulfur

and black spots in the yolk
were nothing to worry
about— just some added

But there’s no awakening from this nightmare.
I’m doomed to eat a poisoned breakfast.
