Today we’re asked “to write a poem that uses the form of a list to defamiliarize the mundane.”
The Humble Egg
White, brown, pale green, blue,
Make sure they’re farm-fresh new
calcium, fat, protein, potassium
Kitchen salvation for mothers and men
Scrambled, over easy,
Poached and served
in blue willow cups.
Atop the ramen
Oh humble egg.
