egg in California (but in Connecticut)Yuri Bong

for this hungover embalmer
but it’s begun

be boil, (be eat)
be scramble, (be eat)
be chicken (maybe eat)

meet oven, (be eat)
meet fry, (be crispy, be eat)

would you rather
be Southern Fried Nellie, (be eat)
be San Francisco Fried Korean, (be eat)
be

this is when egg
be eat
