My Poem “Latitude” is featured at Poetry Breakfast


My poem “Latitude” is on the menu at Poetry Breakfast. Many thanks to Cate T. for sponsoring the title during the August 2015 Tupelo Press 30/30 Challenge, and to Charlotte the hen for laying the egg that inspired the poem. I’m pleased that it’s landed at a breakfast joint!

  1. Eggs are one of my protein staples, partly because I don’t care much for meat, but mostly because I don’t cook regularly, and eggs can be an easy cop-out that still tastes good.

    THIS poem, though, reminds me why I’m enamored with roosters and chickens. Their little/big! personalities, their guttural, perceptive commentary on everything, their general affability (yet liability to become duly ruffled by an affront)… I can only aspire to be so real, alive. Indeed, they are metaphors, and not. πŸ”πŸ³πŸŒŽ

    Congratulations, Sir Robert of the Vorpal Whisk!

  2. Charlotte and I are honored all over again, Bob! And you have put an edge on my appetite for scrambled eggs, which I plan to prepare posthaste. πŸ™‚ Congratulations on making the Poetry Breakfast menu!

    • Yep. Placing the eggs in simmering water, wrapping the eggs individually in plastic wrap before inserting in water, and using a poaching pan, which keeps the eggs out of the water. I like wrapping the eggs, as it allows you to add flavor (herbs, butter, seasoning), but that process does take a little longer.
