Im thinking of Miss Benedict as I make myself some scrambled eggs
Cracking open the shell on the side of this deep Pyrex bowl,
I know theres always a risk some bits of shell will get mixed in

I claw them out with a fork then add milk, butter, herbs, and begin to whisk
The milk and yoke appear not to blend at first... but as the steady beat of my whisking quickens,
it becomes harder and harder to tell the difference

Boundaries blur, liquid and solid cease to exist...all are one in this delightful amniotic union
I pause for a moment to gaze, transported on this frenzy of fluffy yellow clouds...
then proceed with the ritual exaltation of toast, laid upon the glorious, moist cushion, onto which I spoon it

Lovingly, licking the spatula clean...Mmm.

I dislike the mess...you know, the aftermath, the dirty plates and all
If it were up to me, Id smash the lot of them, smearing egg residue on the walls
Maybe Id rub some into her hair and down her blouse

Then roll around forever in this dirty
Frantic...
Ovular...
Heaven...

Well Bluesy,
We know eggsactly what is on your mind and that's no yoke. So you find scrambled eggrotic
do you? To each his own, I prefer chocolate.

Yes, Miss Lori...had my twigs been bent in another direction, I would never have left "Miss Benedict" alone in her kitchen...even if it were raining outside.

Thanks for the read, m'dear.
