You Are BreakfastYou are breakfast
and the best parts of 6am.
Is how I found out 6am
had any best parts.
I'm the batter on the frying pan.
The smudge of an unborn pancake
next to a platter
of my would- be siblings.
The eggshell that got cracked into the bowl-
that unwanted shard
the one that reminds you
of where you came from..
The grease on a piece of turkey bacon
you tried to be healthy
made sick of the good stuff.
I'm the poorly diced tomato
the cold toast,
a has-been that once touched fire
can't remember how heat touched me
or why it would want to..
to put it nicely..
I'm an unfinished plate.
I wonder if I'll ever will be
