My Egg Cracked
 
 
 
my cherished German Kinder Egg cracked

shattered schokolade pieces around a surprise inside

crushed on one side, wrapping splitting open at side seams

rude German baggage security men reacted with sympathy

 

shattered schokolade pieces around a surprise inside

airport security made me empty the schokolade from my suitcase

rude German baggage security men reacted with sympathy

suddenly taken back to their childhood memories, grieving the egg

 

airport security made me empty the schokolade from my suitcase

angrily frowning at the world, like barking dogs threatening to maul passengers

suddenly taken back to their childhood memories, grieving the egg

from the wicked demands of adulthood back to the wonder of childhood

 

angrily frowning at the world, like barking dogs threatening to maul passengers

crushed on one side, wrapping splitting open at side seams

from the wicked demands of adulthood back to the wonder of childhood

my cherished German Kinder Egg cracked
