if the heart cracks like an egg
will it hard boil like one too
you’ve had enough heartburn to make
centuries of party platters
deviled eggs with fancy star-shaped
piped yolks suspended in tasteless whites
the rubbery texture of the heart
the bitter sulphur taste of the heart

Rubbery textures. Brilliant.
Thanks. I like egg salad and the innards of deviled eggs, but the hard boiled white? Always let me unsatisfied.
When I used to eat eggs, I loved deviled eggs best of all. I know a person with a hard boiled heart. Sad.
Just want to say I especially liked this one…maybe because my mind was wandering recently when trying to peel a boiled egg (not too good at…)…and heart imagery needs to be shaken up…which you did
Thanks very much! I always like coming at it from a slightly bent angle.
