    a breakfast poem

    A Little Thought

    Like flipping ones eggs in the pan, delicately,  to retain the yolk
    That gentle fracture of the yolk, it was, before she mis-spoke
    A seemingly minor impulse, as I stroked, a waggling chin
    Allowing purchase to take hold, thoughts, choking, a sudden win
    Neck invoked awkwardly, an awkward silence allowed
    Neither knowing what to say, what other acts would follow
    I look out, across the sea of possibilities, a thought takes hold
    Upon some whim, my life is shaped, regale the hope, I`m told
    Are all acts, both big and small, delicate and rough
    Truly our own, or made from other, whimsical stuff
    Perhaps we, all of us, are but one, somebody`s daydream
    No more real than the puff of thought, unworthy scream
    As insignificant as nervous nerves, that lumber
    From a grudgey God deep in slumber
