Lay an Egg

... Minutes before running out the door to read a fresh batch of poems for a live audience, I received a message from a friend.

"Lay an egg" he said.


Break a leg 
Drink a keg

The man said, "lay an egg."

(And for some reason it made the whole world peel back 
like that snake skin I was writing about earlier today... )

I don't have to get hurt ------- to be lucky.
Or be under the influence of...




Just lay the darn egg
It's already made
It just needs to be laid

It's free.
