Over Easy

The egg cracked,

Dropping onto the grill.

The whites spit.

Cook flipped it with a spatula,

Over easy.


The yolk broke

On impact,


By the time of arrival

On the toast.


The lady ran her plate,

Mopping, pausing, needing

More home fries,

Having a hard time with the ketchup,


Ended up turning the bottle over.

Raked around up inside

With a knife,

Until it all fell out

At once.


Too much ketchup: So she swirled it into the potatoes.
