FLYED EGG SANDWICH
(10/3/14)


while
working out
I notice
a fly

buzzing
from window
to window

room
to room

I attempt
one
half hearted
swat
then let it
be

I have
better
things
to do

later
while cooking
an omelet
for dinner
I step away
to return the carton
to the refrigerator

when
I turn back
the fly
has kamikazeed
into the still
runny eggs

of all
the places

I consider
the situation
as it cooks
along
with my meal

finally
I fish the insect
out

throw
it away

then opt
not
to fold
the eggs
but flip them
instead
like a pancake

surely
the heat
from the pan
would kill
any fly
remnants

when done
I spatula
the result
into breadsize
chunks

putting
a bit more
ketchup
on my egg
sandwich
than usual
