PHONE CALLS THAT I SHOULD BE MAKING

days like today i can just
see it

the sky cracks open
ominous and glowing
and we realize

that we all have just
been living
on the inside of an
enormous blue egg

the whites of the
blue oceans run loose
into a frying pan mixed
with the inner core yolk
and we are cooked
with butter
and spinach
ooh and mushrooms
maybe some feta cheese

wow

we might be an omelette
soon

i have some phone calls
to make
