once someone told me you can.t force an egg to hatch

and i said you can.t force an egg

i.ve tried forcing . throwing . eggs into myriad horizons . dawn and dusk

. before forcing it down my throat.

i tried forcing it to make sense

. to hatch . to fly . to run.

eggs prefer death over force.

ever since then i.ve kept an egg in my hand

then . once . it forced itself open

and flew away leaving me to wonder

how to hold myself together
