Eggshell Life November 2, 2007

Eggshell life

white and hard on the outside

belies the inner gel

fluid, not firm and loose

a texture meant for oyster-eaters

not for the ordinary

fissures present but reveal no

weakness even if vulnerable

struck by vainglory and yet

forgivable like a guileless urchin
