Stolen Eggs

If I stole it, it would undoubtedly taste better. Ever since I was a little girl, despite the food on my grandpa’s plate being absolutely identical to the food I had before me, I would try to steal his. His food was tastier, stronger, more courageous and intelligent than my boring food. The bacon was crispier, the sausage was juicier, and the egg yolks were sunnier.

Lining up inside a pod.

But in fact it wouldn’t be,

Lay your caps and heads

Gently on your cozy mushroom beds.

The loam’s soft and spongy,

The light’s right for fungi,

So hush little mushies, hush.
