Egg Saga
Thursday, January 13, 2005  8:07:00 AM

Cooking/Food/Wine
HONORABLE MENTION at SOL MAGAZINE

THEIR COMMENTS: Catchy title. Great foray into process of boiling eggs, each point detailed and explained, including the use of wonderfully particular words such as "albumen" and "epidermis." Interesting comparison to "hot gems," that brings up a double picture of both boiled eggs and stolen jewels. The intimate touch at the end allows the poem to segue from simple description into a personal and humorous narrative.





On the day we give thanks,
our share of dinner
is eggs, hard-boiled; twenty plus four
divided, makes forty-eight.
Hot gems: hard, brittle, cracked
after time spent in pan on stove.
Then flowing in cold water, the egg shells
peel as fast as four hands can work.
The albumen solidifies when boiled,
the epidermis peels, tears into big
holes like craters on the moon.
Some yolks come through, some lay
upside down, sideways in pan
when cooked...fallen yellows.

I remember my dad, his favorite food,
these hard-boiled eggs. But peeling them caused wars.
Tempers rose on home front, conservation blunt.
My mom began baking them like casseroles.
