Like Liking It

I have spent decades

mired in entitlement

(a white man’s curse),

A dozen eggs

always in the fridge

but never appreciated.

It’s not that I have

woken up and seen

the light, its probably

just inflation –

but these eggs

look so damn beautiful.

How fortunate I am

just to tell you so.

  1. Your graphic does justice to egg beauty. Remember the slogan of years ago put out by the egg industry: “The incredible edible egg”? Someone in that ad agency was a poet! For me it has mouth appeal akin to “Little Italy.” Just fun to say. Otherwise, I’ve banished “incredible” from my vocabulary. It’s incredibly overused.
