Sunnyside up.
The pan was still warm when I dropped it into the sink. We had eggs. You had them sunnyside up, but I couldn't bear runny egg whites and so I had scrambled. Just in case. You found your right shoe and left. I sat at the kitchen table drumming my fingers against the buttercup plastic cloth and thought about Life with a capital L. What was it all about?

I started to think of breakfast as a metaphor for us. You had it all together. Sunnyside up. I was scrambled. A convoluted tick of a person. I started to consider my life as being thoroughly forked. I watched the birds outside the kitchen window for a while and did not relate them to what I had just eaten. After a long slither of time had passed I got up and washed the pan until the eggs were gone. You never came back. I learnt not to mind.
Sunnyside up.
Fuck knows.

Not every can make good, scrambled eggs.

Beautiful.

Painful to read. No, not because of any literary reasons, but for personal. I used to be the one that cooked.

Lovely, as everything you write.

Does anyone really have it all together? In the end it's all liquid chicken.

That's the best description of eggs I've ever seen.
