Boiled eggs,

two soft boiled eggs,

four minutes sortie,

give or take a few spoonrides

for immersion and rescue –

tense moments, critical mass.

Two slices of toasted oatmeal brown:

four buttered diagonals, obtuse triangles,

bread hats for bald coolies in monsoon, torn

to shreds by bare hands for dipping soldiers

and to perform mopping up ops in egg, salt and pepper theatre.
