Middle of the Road

Middle of the Road

Step across your side
and meet me in the fallow;
come with the innocence
of a freshly laid egg.

Do not mind the cracks
and crevasses; if your foot
lands on one, it will not break
your mother’s back.

Quick, before the thin edge
of the wedge becomes deep;
prime the seed, like a pump,
with a feathered whisper.

Be brilliant, talk yourself into it;
wipe the yolk from your face
and move to the soft center,
flip your sunny side up.
