Cracked







MAGPIE 112

She cracked me
And
Broke me
Without a thought

My top tossed
Away
With a 
Flick of the wrist

My insides thrown
Into
Boiling water
She poached me

Now she sits
With
Toasted bread
Ready for heaven 

The jagged edges
Of
Her life
Momentarily forgotten

  5. Very nice, GF. Did you see my recipe for baked egg in avocado? But then that would be another poem all together.

  6. I like the simplicity of this. The journey to inner peace can be a hard one. (Boiling and poaching - yikes)
