yolk

 

She did this weird thing when eating food
Stopping and getting up and walking around a bit, if there was music she danced
I just kept eating because I was focused or maybe it was something the army did to me
She would say
Did you see that?
And I didnít
She would sit back down and separate the hash browns into two perfect halves
She would turn her fork sideways and evenly split the two eggs upon her plate
Her two slices of toast were always placed on the outside evenly looking in or listening like the ears of a Mr. Potato Head.

I always took my hash browns and put them on top of the toast, then put my eggs on top of it all and with my fork smashed it all together letting the yolk and yoke saturate it all.
