Fried Eggs

She had this operation but
they never told me what she’d
look like after. So I tried not to look but
I think she knew. Later when I saw
her I had to pretend. I had to sort out where to
lay my eyes when she was in the
room, but hers were flat on me
like fried eggs. It got so
I just stayed away.

I the mother of two complex young women and a beautiful teenage boy, I'm a doctor, a wife, a writer, a good gardener, a terrible cook, a hopeless romantic, a lazy voter, an impatient driver, a conscientious objector, a good daughter, a reasonable sister, a really bad patient, the worst kind of singer, an excellent sewer and the best damn dreamer you ever met.
