Let’s Get it Over…Easy

Posted on


Egg me on

Come on

Tap me twice and

I’ll break for you

Find the faults that you’ve

Held me to

Watch the way that

I spill for you

Poke my yolk

Make me run

Scramble my thoughts

It’s still

All over your face



A quadrille is 44 words, excluding the title. This week you must include the word “egg”.Β 

Kim is our host. It’s all happening over at dVerse Poets Pub!

  3. A brilliant title, Mish, and such a creative, quirky, Quadrille! I especially love:

    I’ll break for you’;

    Make me run’
    ‘It’s still
    All over your face’.
