The Breakfast Scene

Satisfaction comes from
a stand-in leaving a bar
with no jacket and a will
to fight.  There is a breakfast
of eggs, rye toast and cut-up
seasoned potatoes.  Too much
salt, tan and black pepper flakes
to dazzle the eye before dipping
into yolks with bread.  The
yolk is what satisfies, hearty
and thick.  Nutritionists will
advise against eating egg yolks
but the truth is that the whites
are much more harmful.  Messy
is the way to be.  The stand-in
will order his eggs scrambled
as to avoid the mess. It may
be a more polite way of dining
but it lacks guts, soul and
forward thinking tendencies.
