Solid Yolks

May 5, 2008
By Emily Russell, Eleva, WI

The red clay bricks make no movement
As the heat cracks their fragile bodies
Dehydrated but smiling

Two children run on their faces
Crushing their smiles
Replacing them with laughter and eggs
Flying through the air

Egg yolks crash to the ground
Yellow bodies mix into red bricks

The hot summer heat bakes the egg film
Onto the crusty clay colored brick
Turning the yolks solid
Like concrete

The heat cracks the fragile bricks
But they sit there smiling
